Family Day: I Heart Art

Sat, Feb 12, 2011

Family Programs

Shared art experiences. New every time.

Admission is free for families with children 12 and under
Activities are appropriate for all ages.

Join the MCA in celebrating our love of art. Explore emotions through hands-on projects and enjoy the MCA’s beloved collection.

Creation Station: Love Landscapes
Education Studios, ground floor
Inspired by the drawings of Joseph Yoakum, make a watercolor of a real or imaginary place you love.

Creation Station: Alphabet of Emotions
Education Center, ground floor
With a color and shape-based alphabet invented by design practice Smith and Linder, tell a story about how you feel.

Creation Station: Mood Glasses
Lake Gallery (east side of the 4th floor)
Create colored lenses with artist Jenna Deidel, then venture into the galleries to look through your creations. Does color affect our experience of art?

Creation Station: It’s what’s inside that counts
2nd floor atrium
Inspired by the work of Andrea Zittel, create an environment inside a container with artist Katie Waugh.

Look & Learn
Explore the exhibition Seeing Is a Kind of Thinking: A Jim Nutt Companion, together as a family. Talk about the artwork and your ideas with artist Rachel Harper.
