Children & Families: Portals Beyond
12:00pm — 3:00pm
What is our relationship to the sun and the moon? How do we envision a space beyond our current sight? Make unique viewfinders in the form of spectacles that act as portals to the stars and imagine what is seen between us and the celestial bodies. Inspired by special exhibition Ugo Rondinone: the sun and the moon. Led by Jeannette Rodríguez Píneda.

Jeannette Rodriguez Pineda is a queer afro-indigenous visual storyteller and education designer whose practice weaves together ethnobotany and plant based photographic processes. Their work reflects on the closely related subjects of permanence, memory, cycles and intergenerational trauma. They collaborate with cultural spaces to design art, ecology and mindfulness programs that decolonize canon based models of learning through a decentralized approach. With a life practice deeply rooted in creativity as ancestral knowledge, Rodriguez Pineda believes in a somatic knowing through the process of creation. They are also a licensed backcountry guide, leading free bilingual hikes through Movimiento, an initiative to strengthen bipoc connection to land.
