Steve Roden, The Silent World (Four Shadows), 2003, oil, acrylic on linen canvas, 72 x 66 x 1 ½ inches, Tang Teaching Museum collection, gift of Michael O. Gold and Sirje Helder Gold in memory of their beloved son Maximilian Arnold Gold, 2020.22.12

Join us in person on Friday, April 1, at 2 pm, for a movement and dance workshop. Maya Gmach ’22 will facilitate a close looking exercise with Steve Roden’s The Silent World (Four Shadows), and then lead a guided dance improvisation where audience members will move their bodies in response to the artwork. The session concludes with a short discussion of how movement can help us see art in new ways. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

This workshop is the first of three conceived of and organized by Maya Gmach ’22 as her capstone project for her 2021-22 Meg Reitman Jacobs ’63 Endowed Internship. The one-year, pre-professional internship for a Skidmore junior or senior focuses on education and public programming. The unique experience functions as a bridge between college and the world beyond.
