Second Sunday at Home

Sunday October 11, 2020

Register for this event through the Eventbrite link.

This Second Sunday features paintings by Aliza Nisenbaum in the forthcoming exhibition, When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Migration through Contemporary Art. These portrait paintings feature families in a setting with Mexican talavera tiles and are the inspiration for the art-making activity: creating your own talavera tile (family) pattern. This process-focused activity will explore how artists use pattern, shape, and color to express ideas and emotions.

The Second Sunday crew will also introduce some of the themes from the exhibition such as cultural diversity and what defines home. As usual, we will elucidate connections that can be made by visitors of all ages with art in the museums.

The activity also builds on the holiday of Dia De los Muertos and provides inspiration for families celebrating at home this year. Second Sunday is for everyone. Everyone is welcome. 

You can access the activity instructions here.

And you can learn more about our programs here.

Please join in the fun!

Second Sunday is made possible through the generous support of the Hobach Family Fund.
