reCREATE Outside Artist Spotlight: Adam Henry

Tuesday / June 27 / 9am-11am

Part of our free MoCA on the Move at Met Park programming happening this summer and fall, this reCREATE Outside event spotlights the work of artist, Adam Henry.

Bringing together his love of Marvel with sculpture, Adam Henry will demonstrate how to first build, and then, decorate a “Thor hammer” for you to take home. No previous art skills needed!

Met Park is located at 13th Street South & S Eads St, Arlington, VA

Community members were invited to draw on Adam Henry’s sculpture, Make Your Mark (2023), before it was removed from the MoCA Arlington lawn in June. Make Your Mark was built by Adam Henry in January 2023, and the Hulk and Spiderman images were drawn by Henry during the community event.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Adam Henry is a Brooklyn born, New York native. He attended Pratt Institute and is a portrait artist, muralist, sculptor, and fabricator. Most recently, Henry constructed the site-specific sculpture, Make Your Mark (2023), at Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington.
