Earth Day Celebration at MoMA PS1 on 23 April, 2022

Marissa Alper

Join us for a celebration of Earth Day, featuring music, art making workshops, and opportunities to seed a new green space at MoMA PS1. The day marks both the closing of Slow Factory’s The Revolution is a School in Homeroom, and the unveiling of jackie sumell & The Lower Eastside Girls Club: Growing Abolition, a new project unfolding around a greenhouse in the side courtyard of PS1 offering points of connection between environmental justice and prison abolition. To celebrate the dialogue forged between these projects, Slow Factory will host a series of musical performances and hands-on workshops on themes of sustainability and climate justice. Bring your used clothing for opportunities to repair, print on, or recycle the textiles. Visitors of all ages will also be invited to participate in the seeding of planters for the greenhouse, a project which continues PS1’s commitment to exploring urban green spaces as places of creativity, community building, and solidarity. Please note that workshop capacity is limited.
