Family Day: Shapes and Colors

Drop by the Smart Museum of Art and investigate how shapes and colors work together! During this Family Day, create colorful and strange-shaped paintings out of wooden panels. Make your own wildly shaped 3D painted sculpture or collaborate with other kids to build with Magna-Tiles. The activities are all inspired by the Wooster-shaped paintings and vibrant colors presented in our summer exhibition, Ted Stamm: In Transit.  

Plus, from 2–3 pm, join our partners from the Chicago Public Library for a Destination Discover Story Time featuring books all about shapes and colors.
