  • Workshop led by

    After studying sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design and cofounding the video collective Videofreex in New York, Mary Curtis Ratcliff moved to the Bay Area, where she makes sculpture, mixed media, and two-dimensional artwork and teaches art to children and families.

Xylor Jane’s Art Wall at BAMPFA is a stunning large-scale calendar built from color-coded triangles representing days, dates, and related natural cycles—a beautiful example of the numerically inspired color patterns for which she is known. In this workshop, select and organize colored triangles corresponding to personally significant dates and numbers, starting with your birth date, and build a unique triangular calendar that represents you.
