IUAM Family Day: Exploring -Isms
Sunday, October 13, 2:00–3:30 p.m.
Thomas T. Solley Atrium, first floor
Inspired by this fall’s special exhibition Art Interrupted, the museum’s Education Department will host a Family Day for children of all ages. Families will be invited to participate in a tour of the exhibition and art activity designed especially for kids.
The tour and activity will focus on themes and stylistic trends in the art of the early twentieth century, a time during which painters revolted against the classic rules of composition and realistic representation.
The interactive, family-friendly tour will take place from 2:30–2:45 p.m. in the museum’s special exhibition gallery. Visitors will be guided through the exhibition and take a special look at several artworks that exemplify different styles from the early twentieth century.
Following the tour, an art-making activity will be offered on the first floor of the atrium. Families will be invited to create works of art inspired by the different styles and subject matter seen in the special exhibition. Materials for the activity will be provided.
This family day is held in conjunction with the museum’s special exhibition, Art Interrupted. Admission for this program and the special exhibition is free.
