Family Saturday: Woven Benches

Visitors on furniture by Liz Collins in Energy Field, Frances Day, Tang Teaching Museum, July 9, 2016, photo by Jim McLaughlin

We will explore, discuss, and get comfy on Liz Collins’ artistic pot-holder style seating pads in her installation Energy Field on the mezzanine, then make pot-holder style weavings to use as bench covers for seats we will make, inspired by the ones in A More Perfect Union.

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 - 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition.

All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required—for additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
