Drawing inspiration from, and in conjunction with, our current exhibition, Images of Resilience: Chicana/o Art and its Mexican Roots, the education department is pleased to host Community Art Museum Day (formerly known as Family Activity Day).
This event celebrates the variety of “identities” that make up our diverse multicultural community. Open to all ages, visitors are invited to take a guided tour of the exhibition and participate in various art-making projects offered throughout the Museum by our educators. Susanna will provide gallery tours of the exhibition at 12:30, 2:00, and 3:30pm. Mary Jo will lead a self-portrait, clay sculpting project in the Lightcatcher Studio. Emily will guide students on a “spirit” animal quest, through a coloring page activity that draws inspiration from the Mexican folk art form known as alebrije (fantastic, mythical spirit animals). In the FIG Art Studio, Rosa and Tatiana will provide our youngest visitors with a bilingual art-making craft titled, Arte con El Sol (Art with the Sun), in which participants create a “lucky” sun image using collage, color tissue, markers, beads, fabric, and more.
Admission to the Museum & event is $3 today. Members are free!
