Recycle, Reuse, Reinvent!
With Earth Day 2011 around the corner, Artpace’s 7th annual Family Day focuses on artists who bring new life and purpose to objects that might otherwise be considered waste. Join us in an eco-friendly block party on Saturday, April 30 from 1 to 4:30pm. The free, public event will feature green, contemporary art-making activities showcasing the work and techniques of current and past Artpace artists, as well as live acoustic entertainment and fun snacks. At Creation Stations and in artist-led workshops, kids and adults can participate in a variety of eco-inspired projects. Whether you like sculpting, collaging, drawing, or photography, we have activities that every member of the family will love!
