The Fabric of India
Join us to explore our latest exhibition, The Fabric of India, which explores the tradition of fabric production in India and how Indian textiles have been woven into religion, politics, and global trade for centuries. This month’s program will be heavy on hands-on components as we will explore dying, weaving, and design through projects in addition to viewing the exhibition.
October 17 & November 21
Collaboration in Art
This month, we are looking at examples of collaboration in our museum galleries. Collaboration can take many forms in the museum: sometimes it can be between two artists, sometimes it can be between the artist and viewer, and sometimes it can even take place unintentionally over time! Join us to learn more and create collaborative artwork together.
January 16 & February 20
This spring, we are excited to open two new exhibitions: one exploring abstract expressionism in general and another dedicated to artist Syd Solomon, a Sarasota resident who specialized in abstract art. For these Homeschool Third Thursdays, we will be exploring both exhibitions and then creating some abstract art of our own!
March 19 & April 16
Join us to learn more about the science behind the circus! We will be exploring the Circus Museum and learning about the physics behind performers’ bodies, the technological developments that changed the circus, the engineering that coordinated the movements of the circus, and the math involved in running the circus day-to-day!
