Calendar / Family Sunday Pop Up
Sunday June 9, 2019 at 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us for a Family Sunday Pop-Up, hosted by Mingei International Museum! This free program for all ages includes interactive activities throughout the library, a hands-on art project, musical performances, storytelling, prizes and much more. Each month the Museum partners with local artists and organizations throughout the San Diego region to offer a diverse range of programming tied thematically to the Museum’s permanent collection.
This month, create your own alebrije inspired by our Mexican folk art collection. Led by Guest Artist Mayra Camacho Chavez you will use wooden shapes, colorful fabrics and string to design your own fantastical creature.
Guest Artist Bio: Mayra Camacho Chavez is a textile/ fiber artist and art educator based in San Diego, CA. She has been trained in fiber arts since the age of 8. Her work is largely inspired by a childhood growing up in the Mexican countryside. She received her BA in Art-Applied Design from San Diego State University and her MA in Art Education from Boston University and has experience teaching art to all ages through a variety of San Diego based art institutions including: Arts for Learning San Diego, ArtReach San Diego, Textile Study Guild of San Diego, Mingei International Museum, and currently The New Children’s Museum.
At 1:00pm, join us for interactive storytelling by Write Out Loud San Diego.
At 2:30 pm, enjoy the sounds of Camarada and meet Scott Paulson on harp, theremin and other “gestural” instruments as he takes you on a musical journey and shares all about his craft.
