Offsite/Virtual Art Series

The Power of Music on Intrepid:

This workshop will highlight how sailors used music to bond and spend their time on the ship when they were not working. Participants will work with oral histories of former crew members recounting leisure and recreation activities, and examine and discuss historical images as they relate to the crew members’ stories. Concluding the workshop, participants will use this inspiration to construct their own mixed media work​​.

Intrepid’s Service in the ‘40s:

Participants will explore Intrepid’s role in World War II through photographs taken aboard the ship, while listening to the decade’s top tunes. Participants will be guided through discussion of the links between popular music and the war effort and will share their own feelings and experiences with each other through the lens of music. Following the discussion of images, participants are invited to get creative and construct mixed media artworks inspired by the era.

Life Aboard:
Discuss Intrepid’s history of service and what it was like to live aboard this “city at sea”! Discussions incorporate photographs and music, and are individually tailored to best engage each audience.

Virtual programs are free but registration is required. To register for the offsite art series, please contact or call 646-381-5162.
