Art Around the World, Spring Family Day
Sunday, April 28, 2019 — 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Come to the Bruce on April 28 to celebrate all different types of art from around the world!
The Museum’s diverse array of exhibitions on view in the art and science galleries presents a world of opportunities to get hands-on with art and science. In the Bantle Lecture Gallery, the community art project Your Place Squared invites youngsters and their parents, grandparents, and caregivers to make a 6 x 6 inch artwork of their favorite place, be it the beach, bedroom, or even the Bruce! Submit the work, and it will become part of the exhibition, on view through June 2.
Inspired by the exquisite Chinese tomb sculpture on display in the Buried Treasures of the Silk Road exhibition, youngsters will be able to make paper tomb sculptures – treasured items they think they might need in the afterlife, assuming the afterlife is just like our world but with better lighting.
With the Sharks! exhibition going swimmingly in the Science Gallery, kids can make a paper-plate shark jaw and learn about the unique anatomy of shark jaws and teeth. (If your young scientists are eager to do some hands-on work in a laboratory setting, sign them up for our Bruce Explorers session on June 9, a new drop-off program designed for children ages 7 to 16 who are ready to take a deep dive into the subject of shark anatomy.)
These activities and more take place from 1:00 to 4:00 pm on Sunday, April 28; Spring Family Day is free for Museum members and to visitors with admission.
