Art, For Kids

Family Arts Day

When: Sat., April 9, 2 p.m. 2022

Families are invited to participate together in this monthly art-making workshop that complements current exhibitions at the Museum. These workshops are geared toward intergenerational learning and creating in a museum setting. Discover the MGMA through fun, educational activities for kids and families. tour Nancy Tobin’s installation Journey to the Center of the Milks, where they will peel back the jungly foliage and enter into the surreal prehistoric garden in which oversized appetite grows in a time where survival and art are primally entwined. Flashlight in hand, explore the color-lit assortment of food-as-landscape. Cast your beam upon the hand-sewn scenes to uncover themes of perseverance and messages of self-reliance. From a safe distance, observe stuffed pink umbilical cords maintaining corn kernel carpeted islands that host survivalist scenes of nurturing and shelter. After the tour gather in the Youth Classroom to create a miniature installation from your imagination with assistance and guidance from Genevieve Kjebsu, art educator. All materials will be supplied.

Price: $5; $2 seniors (age 65 and over), military veterans and students with ID; free for children 17 and under; Families with an EBT Card and valid ID
