In this two-part workshop, participants work with artist and professor of design Patrick Fitzgerald to create found object sculptures. Fitzgerald takes the class into the NCMA’s collection galleries to gather inspiration from famous artists, such as Joseph Cornell, Anselm Kiefer, and El Anatsui, to examine objects as metaphor. The class then constructs their own found object sculptures using the prompt “Birdcage/Birdhouse” from a collection of found objects provided by the Museum.
