FBA Museum Project

The FBA Museum Project gives young people the opportunity to earn community service hours while engaging themselves on an exploration of the city’s most prestigious museums and art galleries. This project invites students and graduates ages 14 and older to meet as group and tour a museum and gallery. Each participant will study an exhibition or piece in an exhibition for the purpose of creating their own unique presentation. Participants may work alone or with partners when completing the presentation. Once the presentation is complete, the participant will share it with groups or individuals who are unable to experience the exhibition on their own. During the entire process participating students can earn FBA community service hours based on the amount of time spent preparing the executing the presentation from start to finish.

Project #5 Features the following Exhibits:

Koizumi Kishio—Remembering Tokyo 

“The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 was the worst natural disaster ever to strike Japan. Using art as a social record, the woodblock print artist Koizumi Kishio (1893-1945) produced this famous art series between 1928 and 1940. These works are fond memories of the old imperial capital, as well as his accounts of the resurrection of Tokyo.” 

Wang Qingsong: ADinfinitum

“Wang Qingsong is considered one of China’s most innovative contemporary artists. He turned from painting to photography in the late 1990s, and currently works in documentary, staged and scroll photography, computer-generated images and sculpture.”
