Event Description
The Art Cart is a drop-in activity station where families and other groups can enjoy hands-on art projects together, taking inspiration from the works on view in the Museum's galleries. For this month's Art Cart activity, families and other groups will be given looking prompts to encourage lively interaction around Leslie Dill's Thread Man in the 20/21 Gallery. In this work of art, shaped wire spells out a portion of an Emily Dickinson poem. Participants will then use the materials provided to create their own text-inspired works by wrapping words or letters. The Art Cart may be enjoyed free of cost every weekend at the Spencer. Parking is free behind the Museum on weekends.
