ART CART PLANTS, LIZARDS, AND SNAKES

1PM – 3:30PM
SPENCER MUSEUM OF ART, LESTER "DUSTY" LOO GALLERY, 401

The Art Cart is a drop-in activity station where children and grown-ups enjoy hands-on art projects together, taking inspiration from original works of art on view. Celebrate International Museum Day with staff from the Spencer and KU Natural History Museum by learning about a 16th-century ceramic platter from France that is covered with plants and reptiles cast from real critters. Then create your own platter from clay. The Art Cart is supported by Midco.
