Ever fantasized about working as an artist in Manhattan with a studio space the size of a museum? For many aspiring artists, even working ones, creating art in an airy loft is a dream. But now the Museum of Modern Art is making that fantasy a reality with Print Studio, an interactive space that invites participants to drop in and experiment with and manipulate images and text. The studio, which is part of the new exhibit Print/Out (opening February 19), also includes artist- and educator-led activities, workshops, and lectures. Not only will you be creating your own work, but you’ll also learn about the new ways digital technologies incorporate traditional printing practices. (Try the Digital Finger-Drawing Workshop on February 23.) Today, drop by the Reanimation Library, where anyone can use the scanners, computers, and photocopiers to play around with the material found in old, discarded books.
Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: Feb. 12. Continues through March 9, 2012
