FREE ADMISSION ALL DAY! FUN FOR ALL AGES!
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art is hosting a FREE admission day for visitors of all ages! Spend your day at the O making crafts, listening to music, eating food, participating in a scavenger hunt, and after hours, practicing yoga with Mark Berger and Kim Doley! The day’s programming is inspired by «Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection», Presented by The Helis Foundation. On view until Jan. 21, «Solidary & Solitary» tells the history of art by African American artists from the 1940s to the present moment. Free admission and programming, courtesy of The Helis Foundation.
Art activities based on abstract works by «Solidary & Solidary» artists will include drape painting inspired by Sam Gilliam, abstract expressionist painting inspired by Norman Lewis and abstract mobiles inspired by Mark Bradford’s waterfall sculpture. Guests can also participate in sign making inspired by the Civil Rights Movement and create dream walls inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
Guests can participate in a scavenger hunt, which encourages individuals to explore the Museum, learn about art and have fun in the process. Children who complete the hunt will receive coloring books.
After Museum visiting hours, from 6 to 7:15 p.m., adults may participate in a free yoga class with Mark Berger, Kim Doley and special guest speaker Whitney Mitchell. The class will focus on the theme: “I have a dream… for our community, our city, our country, our planet.” Followed by a community mingle with cash bar. Register at ogdenmuseum.org.
