> DESCRIPTION

This special interactive program, an essential
part of Ukeles’s vision for her installation for the
exhibition In the Beginning: Artists Respond to
Genesis (through January 4, 2009), reflects the
artist’s view that art is a public collaboration
between the artist and the visitor. Visitors will have
a chance to remove a mirror from the installation, and
put in its place a "covenant,” in which the visitor
promises to do works of goodwill after leaving the
Museum. As a reminder of this promise, each visitor
will take home one of the handmade mirrors made
exclusively for this installation.

Other dates include:
Thursday, September 4, 7 PM and Thursday, November 13,
7 PM

Space is limited. Visitors should reserve
a FREE ticket online by visiting thecjm.org. Tickets
do not include entry to the Museum, general admission
tickets should be purchased separately either online
or at the door.
