First Fridays at Harwood Museum

October 6th, 2023


Movement Explorations 4:30pm and 5:30pm



Come join us the First Friday of every month for after hours museum access and family friendly fun!

October First Friday will feature a variety of interactive and art making opportunities including movement exploration with one of our amazing Open Wall artists, Nadine Lollino of MovementLab, and Origami paper crane making lead by one of Harwood’s new Teaching Artists, Izumi Yokoyama.

Creative movement helps connect us to ourselves, each other and our environment.  It helps unwind patterns associated with stress and pain and feels good!  Open to all ages, Nadine’s playful creative movement exploration will inspire connections inward and outward, deepen our listening and strengthen our imagination.

About Izumi Yokoyama

Izumi Yokoyama’s intricate line drawings and time-haunted installations explore and embrace human struggles within the context of nature. Apparitional motifs in her works are dark and transcending. The concepts are characterized by the presence of absence in her use of negative space. Yokoyama meditatively threads ephemeral and eternal, while evoking nostalgia for the unknown.

Izumi Yokoyama is a multi-media artist who lives and works in Taos, New Mexico. Born in Niigata, Japan, in 1980, Yokoyama graduated with an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute. Yokoyama’s artworks are presented locally and nationally. Birds of Appetite: Alchemy & Apparition, a 2019 exhibition which featured her work at the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, NM, received critical accolades. Her current and upcoming projects range from book illustrations to a large-scale community mural to a haunting installation. She is thrilled to return to the Harwood Museum this summer for a juried exhibition: Contemporary Art Taos 2020.


This First Friday programming is brought to you by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs.
