Emotional Bubble

I will create a safe bubble and save a seat for you inside, so that we can explore through art your troubles and your joys.


Come create with the artist Meiling Chen in an expressive and safe space, in person, or remotely. We will explore your emotions and concerns through artmaking.

Bring an object (ex. a gift from an ex-love, garment from a deceased loved one, or toy from childhood) that has meaningful associations for you. Or use any of the abundant art materials and objects on-site. Meiling will assist you to transform the object and/or create a new artwork of your own, in which your emotions will be well expressed and, hopefully, transformed.

There is no pressure to create – you can have a conversation with her, or she will simply listen.

You are welcome to take the finished artwork with you or leave it on-site as part of the exhibition.

DATES & TIME: October 2021: 16 & 17, 23 & 24, and November 6 & 7, 13 & 14, 20 & 21, from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. (future dates to come)

Take a seat, and explore. Both in-person and remote sessions will be 30 minutes, (45 minutes, if time allows). Walk-ins are welcome if the seat is free. Looking forward to meeting you.

The emotional bubble will be traveling across NYC in the listed locations on the website.
