Celebrate the creative spirit with the whole family at EAM!
May 4-August 17
Inspired by EAM’s newest exhibition Fragment: Sampling the Modern, Artivity welcomes families to design a collage on EAM’s windows. Taking a new spin on the popular mid-century toy “colorforms” guests can create original designs by layering images of popular toys and household items directly on the windows of the museum. Use decals of cars and tools to design a house that will overlook the adjacent park or rearrange the decals of toy animals to tell a story. See it all illuminated by the summer’s sun. Fun for all ages.
