WORD PLAY: Summertime Free Family Days at the Contemporary Art Gallery
12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
555 Nelson Street
On the last Saturday of every month, the CAG invites all ages to drop-in for short exhibition tours and free art making activities that respond to our current exhibitions. This new initiative is presented in collaboration with ArtStarts on Saturdays. This summer’s family days begin with WORD PLAY- we will be playing with words!This workshop will be based on the mural that has transformed the facade of our building; it is created by Mexican artist Stefan Brüggemann and is titled: Headlines and Last Lines in the Movies. The artist has paired together recent news headlines with the last lines from well-known and classic Hollywood movies; we will be tracing individual words and phrases from the mural to create our own text-based works. All welcome!
