September Family Sundays: Dissolving Fears

Are you afraid of something? Like spiders or ghosts? Artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres explored the meaning of fear, especially the fear of losing something you love, in his artwork “Untitled” (Placebo). In this Art from Home activity, let go of your fears and watch them dissolve by creating an impermanent art piece!

Materials list:

  • Marker or pen
  • Toilet paper, tissues, or paper towels
  • A bowl of water


Family Sundays are made possible through the generosity of Agnes Gund, New York Life Insurance Company*, The Prospect Hill Foundation, Tiger Baron Foundation, Con Edison, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

General operating support of the Rubin Museum of Art is provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as by generous donations from the Museum’s Board of Trustees, individual donors, and members.
