August 12: Charms, Clay, and Creation

Tour Divine Instincts, a collection of mysterious figures and sculptures by Gary Spinosa. As you explore the vaulted space of the McCain Family Gallery, consider what protects you and brings you good luck. Then sculpt your own talisman, an object that protects against harm, out of air dry clay.

Second Sundays is a program for families that takes place each month at the Museum. Visitors are invited to take a tour of a featured gallery with a Museum educator and participate in an exhibit-based art making activity, often with the help of a visiting artist. Explore the Museum galleries, make meaningful connections to the artwork and build cool creations to take home. Each month we can become sculptors, filmmakers, photographers, animators, dancers and more with projects that are cool enough for kids and still intriguing for older ages.

Second Sundays

The Museum offers Pay-What-You-Wish admission on Second Sundays  from 1 – 5 p.m.
