Make with MAAM: Imagining Futures Past

February 18, 2024
Barkan Family Big Ideas Studio

Imagine a limitless future of joy as you unleash your inner artist in the Barkan Family Big Ideas Studio every weekend. During this free drop-in event, experiment with recycled and found materials while dreaming up new destinies through artmaking and creative exploration. Gain inspiration from our current exhibition, The Myth of Normal: A Celebration of Authentic Expression, which explores importance of art as a way of fostering well being.


This event is intended for individuals and small groups of 5 or less. Adults must accompany children age 12 and under.



The MAAM site is set in MAAM Sans drawn by Nick Sherman (MassArt ’06), Beatrice by Sharp Type, and Stellar by Pangram Pangram.

The site was designed by MassArt alumnæ at Moth Design, written by 43,000 Feet, and developed by pod consulting.
