Don’t miss our monthly event just for families. Explore the Museum’s colorful exhibitions with an interactive treasure map, roll up your sleeves for a hands-on art project, learn more with a docent tour, take home prizes and have fun!
Join us to celebrate all-American craft on the closing weekend of the Museum’s MADE IN AMERICA – Craft Icons of the 50 States exhibition. Nationally recognized quilt instructor, Jan Krentz, will guide participants through the stitching of their own quilting project! Quilt making has a long history in the United States. Made by individuals and/or groups of women (and sometimes men), quilts are made by piecing together multiple layers and strips of fabric to provide a warm multi-layered blanket. Each quilt is a unique creation that can tell us about the region where it was created and the people who made it.
At 2:30pm, enjoy the sounds of Camarada and meet Gunnar Biggs on double bass as he takes you on a musical journey and shares all about his craft.
