Family ArtVenture: We Love Colors
About this Event
We’re partnering with Harvester Arts to brighten up your February with a dose of color! Celebrate and explore a variety of bold and beautiful colors in fun artmaking and art looking activities around the Museum. What will your favorite color be?
- Get creative with a variety of bold and beautiful colors in fun artmaking activities in the Art Studio and the Living Room. Drop in between 11 am and 3 pm.
- Celebrate WAM’s new painting Sunday Kind of Love by watching a performance in the galleries choreographed by Harvester Arts Managing Director and dance artist Mina Estrada and performed by dancers Sheldon Mba and Aviance Battles at 11:30 am and 1 pm.
- Explore how artists play with color during story time in the galleries at 12:30 and 2 pm.
Dancers Aviance Battles and Sheldon Mba, in collaboration with choreographer Mina Estrada, will perform a dance created in response to the newly acquired painting Sunday Kind of Love by Robert Peterson.
Peterson described this work as a painting that reflects “a side of Black that isn’t shared enough – one that is strong and resilient, yet gentle.” The dance, performed in the gallery with the painting, will echo this sentiment while also exploring the elements of color, light, and symbolism in this exquisite work.
This special dance performance is part of the Harvester Arts and WAM collaboration.
