A cardboard maquette at the Smart Museum of Art.
Drop by the Smart Museum of Art and make sculptures in celebration of the final weekend of Ruth Duckworth: Life as a Unity.
The afternoon activities make use of the museum’s stock of cardboard maquettes—full-scale replicas of Duckworth’s ceramic sculptures, which were used by the exhibition team when planning where to place the real artworks on their plinths and platforms in the galleries. Pick one up and paint it with a colorful design to take home, or build your own cardboard creation from scratch!
FREE, drop-in. Art-making supplies and other materials are provided. Family programs are best for kids 4–12, but all ages are welcome! Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
