Inspired by a recent TEDxLosGatos event held at the Netflix campus in Los Gatos, this exhibition presents an interactive opportunity for museum visitors to call up their courage alongside video highlights of the program that featured live speakers and video testimonials responding to the theme of “Dare.”

Dare is defined as having the necessary courage or boldness to undertake or challenge something or someone. Riffing on artist Candy Chang’s Before I Die participatory public installation, described by The Atlantic as one of the most creative community projects ever, DARE @ NUMU presents a giant chalkboard wall for NUMU visitors to write down their aspirations of undertaking personal acts of courage - daring themselves to think, imagine, create and change. The interactive chalkboard wall created by NUMU for participants at the September 2018 TEDxLos Gatos conference will be on view in the exhibit along with video highlights from the program to provide inspiration to exhibition visitors.

Dare @ NUMU is on view in the museum’s Spotlight Gallery from October 19th through February 10, 2019. Additional Programs support for the exhibition will be announced in the coming weeks.

Takbon Texture Printmaking with Cindy Davis

—Canceled—Takbon Texture Printmaking with Cindy Davis

Sunday, November 4  | 10:30am-4:30pm
Skill Level: Beginner + | Ages: 16 +

Fee: NUMU Member: $100  | General: $120
All Materials Included with Tuition

All class fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Explore the ancient process of Takbon, a traditional Korean printmaking technique for transferring the textures of objects onto paper. The result is similar to a rubbing, but instead of using friction and a crayon or charcoal, an inked dauber is tapped on the surface of the paper. This gentle method of tapping reveals minute details and allows for the arrangement of different objects in a single print. Novice and experienced printmakers  are invited to discover this unique approach to printmaking and experiment a variety of shape and texture combinations using natural objects, such as leaves, flat seashells, large feathers, as well as coins, buttons, keys, ceramic tiles, anything with texture and depth! Students are encouraged to bring a favorite short poem or haiku, which can be printed with an embossing label maker and illustrated. By the end of the workshop, students will take home 6-8 prints and a new found appreciation of an ancient art form. 

About the Instructor:

Cindy Davis was introduced to printmaking while staying in Perugia, Italy where she became a student of artist and Franciscan Padre Diego Donati. Cindy helped form a print cooperative in Columbus Ohio, where for 20 years she has taught numerous classes in a variety of techniques.

Exhibition Closing: In the Artist’s Studio: David Middlebrook

Exhibition Opening:

In the Artist’s Studio: David Middlebrook

June 28, 2018 – October 21, 2018

In the Artist’s Studio supports NUMU’s mission and success in being able to story tell in new ways. Most people do not have the opportunity to visit an artist’s studio and learn first hand how artwork is made, but more importantly why it is made. Art making is a response to environmental, cultural, political and personal experiences. NUMU intends to offer ideas and insight into this practice and thereby share the ingenuity, intelligence and empathy that goes into the creative process. 

In this second installment of In the Artist’s Studio, NUMU is pleased to invite you into the studio of Los Gatos resident David Middlebrook for an introduction to his work, creative process and life as an artist. In this virtual studio visit, you will see his sculpture, view art making tools and personal items, along with photographs of private studio spaces, which are rarely open to the public.

More information including high res images for download may be found on our Press Resources Page.  Read press coverage for the exhibition on the NUMU in the News page. Sign-up to receive our Press Releases.
