FREE for educators
Virtual Event

This presentation will focus on the artist Felipe Pantone, who draws inspiration for his street art from the Op and Kinetic art of the 1960s, as well as the current digital climate. Inspired by Pantone’s Optichromie—BUF, 2019, commissioned by the Public Art Initiative, we’ll explore how the artist's signature fusion of mesmerizing black-and-white patterns with bold prismatic forms and oversized fluorescent pixels can inspire lesson plan development and artmaking.


Please register online. Registered participants will receive a link to join this virtual event the morning of the program.

About the Series

In these free monthly presentations just for educators, we will explore contemporary artists from the Albright-Knox’s collection and public art projects for curriculum inspiration. Join School and Docent Programs Coordinator Lindsay Kranz for discussions on how contemporary artists are exploring what it means to be a citizen in the 21st century and how those themes might engage students in virtual and in-person learning. View All Series Dates
