Join us for Family Fun Day featuring Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection Sunday, October 13; 1-4 pm. We've got a full day of art-making and adventuring just for you! Check it out:
On the Surface: Piece together a painting surface using old maps, wood grain, and other found materials. Then use paint sticks and other mark-making tools to create an image over the collage.
Some Assembly Required: Some artists scout out everyday objects that have been tossed away to create something new and exciting! Assemble a found object sculpture by stapling drinking straws together to create a three-dimensional artwork that will zig-zag across your wall.
Storytelling: There's no shortage of words, ideas, or starting points when you team up with storyteller Rita Paskowitz! Make a stop with us in the gallery to investigate a work of art and weave a collective narrative using personal interpretations and visual clues. 1:30 pm & 2:30 pm
Word Art: Jump in on this collaborative project, inspired by text-based artworks from Legacy. We've taken a spin on Carl Andre's Gazetteer and are providing an art-making area to create a gazetteer of our own! Reflect on the word "place" and, using stamps and vinyl lettering, post one word that reflects your conception of this word.
Truffula Paintings: Engineer a Seuss-like painting tool to take home using sticks, rubber bands, and sponges. Then create a forest of brightly-colored "Truffula Trees" for the Lorax and his friends!
Community Art: Visit the Discover Garden to see a "Truffula Tree" created by students from Blackburn Alternative High School, Skinner Magnet Center, and Peter Kiewit Institute, all with guidance from artist Elmo Diaz. A project of UNO's Service Learning Academy; on view October 8-November 8.
