About The Event

 

Every third Saturday of the month, stop by the Ames Family Atrium between noon and 4:00 p.m. to get a firsthand look at the art-making process. Each session will provide you the opportunity to engage and interact with a different Northeast Ohio maker during pop-up demonstrations and activities. See their work unfold and learn how artists create. 

The exhibition Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel shows cities as places of artistic collaboration. Artist Matthew Kolodziej invites visitors to collaborate on the creation of a reimagined cityscape. Photograph your favorite details of architecture and cityscapes in any artwork that you find in the museum, including in Tales of the City. Upload your photograph(s) from your phone to the event’s Padlet. Stop by the atrium on December 17 to see your detail become part of the artist’s work! 

Join curator Emily Peters for gallery talks in Tales of the City at noon and 2:00 p.m.

This event is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel.
