AUGUST 

Sunday, August 12, 2 pm
Family Day: Exhibition-inspired activities for children and their families with exhibiting artist Alison McNulty in Time Travelers: Hudson Valley Artists 2018

Join us for a tour and art-making activity in conjunction with our exhibition Time Travelers: Hudson Valley Artists 2018. Exhibiting artist Alison McNulty will discuss her work in the exhibition as it relates to the theme of finding traces of the past in the materials left behind. Following this, we will gather materials from outside the musuem to make our own cyanotype prints on fabric, creating a ghost image of the materials we are drawn to.

*Please note that the Museum is open only on weekends in August.
