Family Day

Pizzuti Family Day-129.jpg

Family Day at Pizzuti Collection is a wonderful opportunity to gather the family for a full day of arts programming. Enjoy complimentary admission while exploring the exhibitions on view. Children and adults will have the opportunity for crafts and activities and guided tours.

This Family Day at Pizzuti Collection we will be constructing animal masks - real or imagined! Using cardboard, twine, craft paper and glue, we will make our imaginary creatures come to life! Do you have more than one Halloween event to dress up for? Come to Family Day to add that handmade mask to your costume closet! Craft will take place from 12:00 noon until 3:00 pm. RSVP recommended (email Wynne Morgan at wmorgan@pizzuticollection.org); Walk-Ins Welcome! 

Inspired by artist Aboubakar Fofana’s textile artwork, Miiri, we will be hosting an Indigo Dyeing Activity! We will use Japanese Shibori techniques to resist-dye our tee shirts.

At 1:30pm, right after the Family Day tour, we will have an organic indigo dye vat prepared outside the Pizzuti Collection in our Sculpture Garden! White cotton tee shirts will be provided to all participants, but you can also bring your washed white socks or pillow cases to give them some color!


We will also be inviting visitors join us by participating in the For Freedoms Lawn Signs activation. Inspired by politician’s campaign signage, For Freedoms lawn sign activations encourage participants to produce and publicly display their own definition of freedom by filling out signs that say: Freedom Of..., Freedom From..., Freedom For..., and Freedom To…

The For Freedoms Lawn Sign activation is in conjunction with the For Freedoms exhibition and the 50 State Initiative.
