Children and Families: Special Workshop with Artist Melissa McGill
Sunday, October 4
Enjoy a hands-on workshop with Melissa McGill, whose site specific installation, Constellation emerges nightly over the Bannerman Castle ruin on a mysterious island in the Hudson River. Every evening, as the sun goes down, starry lights appear one by one with the stars of the night sky. Hovering around the perimeter of the castle ruin, these lighted points refer to features of the structure still standing, as well as those details which no longer exist—creating a new constellation connecting past and present through this large-scale sculptural light-based public art.
