The Drawing Experience is a hands-on interactive exhibition that allows visitors to immerse themselves in the world of drawing. The exhibition is designed to engage 21st-century learners through technology and participatory learning and features drawings from the Stark Museum of Art’s collection. 

Join the Stark Museum of Art from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 13, at 712 Green Avenue in Orange,

for an Opening Reception celebrating its new special exhibition The Drawing Experience with live music by David Gonzalez and friends, free wine from Free State Cellars, and delicious appetizers from The Garden District.

Admission to this event is free through the generous support of the Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation. 

Jennifer Restauri Dickinson, Curator of Education, comments, “We’re thrilled to host an Opening Reception to give our community a special sneak peek at this engaging and dynamic exhibition. The Drawing Experience is an incredible opportunity for our visitors to get an inside look at how artists use the art of drawing. We have selected a range of drawings from our collection that show a variety of techniques and approaches artists use, and I know visitors of all ages will enjoy the participatory approach of this exhibition from experimenting with different media through digital platforms to using light tables and a 21st-century twist on a 300-year old drawing tool called a camera lucida.”
