Chris Uphues and Grace Johnstone with the tour in front of Thomas Kovachevich's, “The Garden”
A big thank you to everyone who joined us at NADA over the weekend. We had two wonderful kids tours led by Chris Uphues on Saturday and Yolande Whitcomb on Sunday and both were fun- and art-filled explorations of the fair! We had a super-creative group of kids who were eager to share their impressions and we were blown away by the engagement and insights of our crew. The Kids' Choice favorites included Ben Jones' video paintings at Loyal Gallery, a Roy Lichtenstein piece made with wallpaper and tinfoil at Alden Projects (with huge thanks to Todd Alden who gave a wonderful talk) and Thomas Kovachevich's cardboard and paper sculpture “The Garden” which was a great setting for using our imaginations. Quote of the weekend goes to Max who noted that a small Yves Klein blue square looked like "a blurry, fuzzy blue monster." In addition to the tours, all of the kids who jointed us walked away with LittleCollector tote bags, a NADA kids guide and crayons, ensuring that the creative process was just beginning! For those who missed the tour this time, be sure to sign up for our mailing list to get first notice of our next kids tour plus other fun art events hosted by LittleCollector in and around New York City.
