Families are invited to Kids Day 2022, an afternoon of free indoor and outdoor art-making and activities at RAM's Wustum Museum on Friday, June 17, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm. Inspired by the upcoming exhibition, Cultural Reflections: RAM Community Art Show, these art projects, games, and activities explore tradition and ways of life. Use paint and ink to print a paper kente cloth inspired by artist Tonya Harris' fiber art in Cultural Reflections; or create a three-dimensional mixed media portrait representing individuals or their families. There is also a large-scale collaborative art project for everyone to be a part of.
Local artist Veronica Gagliano Averkamp will be on-site creating large-scale chalk drawings throughout the museum grounds depicting food from diverse cultures, and seascape imagery inspired by the work of artist Edouard Duval-Carrié. Duval-Carrié's enormous two-dimensional landscape entitled Lost at Sea is on loan to RAM through August 27 by Art Bridges, who also provided generous support for Kids Day 2022.
