On occasion of the opening of a new education space in the Museum of Modern Art — “People’s Studio: Design, Experiment, Build” — this panel discussion examines three case studies in experimental education that have greatly influenced subsequent generations of learners and educators. This program will offer multiple perspectives on the relationship that artists, architects, and designers have long had with educational techniques.
