Family Saturday

Saturday, August 12, 2023

Free and open to the public!

Join us for an afternoon of free, hands-on art-making activities designed and inspired by the Contemporary’s exhibiting artists. This Family Saturday, join us for workshops designed by Unmooring artist Brittany Ham and The Direct Path artist, Michael Velliquette whose work will be on view through September 3, 2023. Come by, have fun, and make artwork before school starts again!
