Topical Cream is a New York-based arts organization supporting the work of women and gender non-conforming contemporary artists.
Artist Juliana Huxtable is teaching a Youth Workshop on Punk Rock Button Making at Artists Space in New York.

Please join Topical Cream on Saturday, June 22, 2024 for our inaugural Topical Cream Youth Workshop Series with one of the most important living American artists, Juliana Huxtable!

The Topical Cream Youth Workshop Series is a series of in-person talks and workshops given by high-profile women and gender non-conforming contemporary artists and thinkers. This series aims to engage young minds by sharing insights, experiences, and perspectives on history with youth of all ages.

Our series strategically empowers all youth with insights from feminist luminaries through highly engaging hands-on workshops and conversations. This artist-powered series provides a unique platform for young people to learn from and interact with influential figures in the arts and intellectual spheres. These luminary figures offer a wide range of perspectives and experiences and are masters in their fields. Our goal is to foster a deeper understanding of intergenerational connections while encouraging youth to think creatively and critically about art, culture, and society!

 For this workshop, Juliana Huxtable will give a fun overview of girls in punk rock, demonstrating how button-making serves as a vehicle for expression, protest, and community engagement!
