Family Day: Cardboard Sculptures

Saturday, Feb 3, 2024 1 – 4 pm

The University of Chicago

Chicago, IL 60637

Drop by the Smart Museum of Art and make sculptures in celebration of the final weekend of Ruth Duckworth: Life as a Unity

The afternoon activities make use of our stock of cardboard maquettes—full-scale replicas of Duckworth’s ceramic sculptures, which were used by the exhibition team when planning where to place the real artworks on their plinths and platforms in the galleries. Pick one up and paint it with a colorful design to take home, or build your own cardboard creation from scratch! 

FREE, drop-in. Art-making supplies and other materials are provided. Family programs are best for kids 4–12, but all ages are welcomed! Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
