Children and parents can explore the connection between movement and drawing in Drag, Drop, and Roll!, a family program organized by The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM). This interactive “body drawing” event is inspired by Ally, FWM’s current exhibition of art and dance by Janine Antoni, Anna Halprin, and Stephen Petronio.
 
When families enter the event space for Drag, Drop, and Roll!, they will find our print studio covered in paper, which will serve as the large-scale surface for participants to make their mark. Garments—such as aprons, hats, gloves, and shoes—covered in cast chalk will be available for all to wear. Wall projections of Antoni’s performances, as well as past FWM Artists-in-Residence—William Anastasi, Daniel Arsham X Jonah Bokaer, Trisha Brown—will serve as visual examples of the ways artists use mark-making as a record of bodily movement. After Drag, Drop, and Roll!, FWM will produce our own record: a time-lapse video that documents the drawing progress. 
 
Major support for Ally has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. Initial support for this project was provided by Creative Capital. Additional funding comes from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Shipley-Miller Foundation, and the Board of Directors and Members of The Fabric Workshop and Museum.
