Installation plan by Laurel Broughton for Wall Works: Black Holes, 2013, Courtesy of the artist

The 21st installment of the Santa Monica Museum of Art’s award-winning Wall Works program is a collaboration with Laurel Broughton, a renowned artist and designer and founder of WELCOMEPROJECTS. For Black Holes, Broughton introduces hundreds of kindergarden through 12th grade students to the Surrealist method of transforming everyday objects into works of art. Using blank TetraPak milk cartons, students create a graphic, Milky Way-inspired installation for Bergamot Station Arts Center’s G-Hallway. 

Wall Works is SMMoA’s longest-running free educational arts program, which connects acclaimed contemporary artists with the creative imaginations of local Santa Monica-Malibu and Los Angeles Unified School District students. SMMoA provides participating schools free of charge with art supplies, lesson plans, and instructions, including a Museum-produced video with the featured artist. To date, Wall Works has involved more than 6,000 students in grades K-12, 50 schools in 5 districts and 20 artists. Wall Works was awarded the inaugural 2012 Superintendent’s Award for Excellence in Museum Education from the California Association of Museums (CAM). The Superintendent’s Award recognizes the outstanding achievements in California museum programs that serve K-12 students and/or educators.

Laurel Broughton explores her interest in narrative, material culture, form and style within fashion, architecture and design in a myriad of scales with her studio WELCOMEPROJECTS. She received her B.A. from New York University (NYU) in Comparative Literature and Critical Theory and M. Arch. from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI_arc). In 2011, Laurel launched WELCOMECOMPANIONS, a collection of playful accessories that embrace the relationship between material culture and ideas. Her designs have been featured in Newsweek, Marie Claire Italia, Paper Magazine, Elle Italia and Lucky Magazine among many others. In addition to directing the studio, Laurel teaches design at the USC School of Architecture.
