Frozen in Motion

In partnership with Creative Aging Memphis, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art hosted a sculpture workshop for senior adults to exercise their creativity, explore new artmaking processes, and create their own three-dimensional artwork. Led by teaching artist Sarah Nowlin, students in the six-week class made both gesture drawings and sculpture, working with the theme of “movement.” The students created their sculptures using cardboard, wire, foil, and masking tape. They were then covered in layers of paper mache clay and either painted, decoupaged, or left bare. From Elvis, to birds, to sea creatures, and more, each sculpture is a unique depiction of “movement.”

Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?

Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?

The American art theorist Linda Nochlin (1931-2017) posed this question as the title of a pioneering article in 1971. This essay was considered one of the first major works of Feminist art history, it has become a set text for those who study art internationally, and it is influential in many other fields.
