Family Day: Fold/Unfold

Sat, Oct 13, 2012, 11  am–3 pm

Family Day

Studio: Folded Fashion
Inspired by Jimmy Robert’s wearable sculptures, join artist Tim Nickodemus in folding, draping, and tearing sheets of paper as you create your own designs- perhaps a shirt, skirt or hat.

Studio: 2D to 3D
Inspired by Jimmy Robert’s frequent use of flat, or 2D materials, manipulate paper and other flat materials as you work to build a strong standing 3D structure with artist Kristin Sabatino.

Studio: Layer After Layer
Taking cues from Jimmy Robert’s interest in layering paper, work with artist Gabe Garcia as you layer color upon color as part of a collaborative installation directly on the MCA plaza. In the case of incliment weather, this Studio will not take place.

Find the Artist
Artist Jenna Deidel is roaming the galleries on Family Day- find Jenna and join her for a conversation or movement game inspired by an artwork.

Scavenger Hunt
Use picture clues to find six artworks.

Tot Spot
Enjoy a complimentary healthy snack, read a book, or build with some blocks. A great place to rest and recharge as a family.
