In preparation for Jaimie Warren’s spring 2020 exhibition at Pioneer Works, the artist will be creating an immersive puppet wonderland created and designed in collaboration with their artist community and a wide range of local youth and volunteers.

Work with Warren to create bugs, snakes, flowers, cookies, and candies to contribute to the upcoming installation or to take home with you.

This event will take place off-site at Governors Island, Nolan Park 8B, which is accessible via ferry from Manhattan and Brooklyn.
