Staycation: A Journey in Art

3/17/2018 / 10:00am - 3:00pm

Join us for a Staycation: A Journey in Art on the second Saturday of spring break. Bring your children, friends, and family for a free engaging experience that will spark curiosity and imagination! Drop in for unique hands-on activities in the studios or go on a self-guided safari adventure in the museum.

The exhibition Wanderlust: Actions, Traces, Journeys 1967 – 2017 is a 50-year survey exhibition that considers the themes of action and exploration outside of the studio and how artists engage this theme in various ways, including walking, cartography, land use, endurance, and the consideration of public space.

Chef’s Palette, the Art Center Café, will join the fun with a special kid’s menu.
