Stark Museum hosts 3-D Family Day
The Stark Museum of Art, in Orange, Texas, invites families to 3-D Family Day on Saturday, Oct. 22, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Admission is free, and all ages are welcome. 3-D Family Day will highlight sculptures from the Stark collection. Children can search for clues during a scavenger hunt inside and outside the Museum to win a prize. Visitors will learn about sculpting processes such as bronze casting and stone carving at the Museum.
A highlight of this Family Day will be three-dimensional art activities. Visitors can build three-dimensional structures with a variety of materials at art stations throughout Family Day. Families can listen to a story about sculpture at the reading station. Complimentary refreshments will also be available.
Amelia Wiggins, Public Programs Educator, welcomes the public, saying, “We invite families to 3-D Family Day to sculpt together and learn about art in three dimensions at the Museum. One of the fun projects we have planned is making found-object robot sculptures.” Wiggins reminds the public that the Museum welcomes all ages, but children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Families will also have the opportunity to view newly renovated galleries showcasing the permanent collection, as well as the special exhibition Visions of the West. This exhibition explores how the land, wildlife, individuals, conflicts and communities shape our concepts of the American West. Visions of the West will be on view through December 31, 2011.
Located at 712 Green Avenue in Orange, Texas, the Stark Museum of Art is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Admission is free for all ages. Group tours are available by appointment. For more information call 409.886.ARTS (2787) or visit www.starkmuseum.org.
