Saturday, September 17, 2022, 12:00–3:00 p.m. 
Ames Family Atrium

Every third Saturday of the month, stop by the Ames Family Atrium 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.  

Join contemplation guide Gwendolyn Ren and CMA staff for a series of mindful close-looking experiences in the museum galleries and a hands-on experience with objects in the atrium. Discover what you see when you pay closer attention to a work of art. Groups will meet in the Ames Family Atrium at 12:00, 12:30, 2:00, and 2:30 p.m. Each of the 4 sessions will last about 25 minutes and will be limited to 15 people on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Organized in conjunction with FRONT International 2022: Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows
