October Sundays: Rings of Reason

Explore ideas of growth and belonging at October Family Sundays. This art-making activity, called Tree Rings / Reflect Select / Self Visions is inspired by Matti Braun’s immersive installation R.T/S.R/V.S., which features a shimmering reflecting pool interspersed with tree stumps as stepping stones. Just as tree rings show the passage of time, use a slice of a tree trunk to make a print, then add symbols, drawings, and writing to represent important events, people, and places in your life that have made you who you are today.

Family Sundays are made possible by New York Life. Additional support has been provided by Agnes Gund, Con Edison, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.


Free for children and accompanying adults
