EVERSON MUSEUM OF ART TO HOST FAMILY DAY

March 3, 2015

SYRACUSE, NY (March 3, 2015)- The Everson Museum of Art is pleased to host Family Day, a free event full of art making and gallery exploration, on March 28 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Families with children ages 5-12 can participate in a family friendly docent led tour at noon with lively discussions.

After the tour, art making is open to the entire family. Participants can create their own Action Paintings like those by Jackson Pollock on view in current exhibition Prendergast to Pollock: American Modernism from the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, build sculptures with clay, and create a 3D still life using tissue paper, pipe cleaners and more. Guests can also grab a paint brush and contribute to a huge, collaborative Paint-by-Numbers mural.

Curator of Education Kimberly Griffiths said, “We are so pleased to provide families with a day of fun and learning with art at the center. We hope children and adults alike will flex their imaginations and make great memories at the Everson.”

Family Day is made possible by Pathfinder Bank.
