The Chinati Foundation initiates series of free family days in July
Calling all tri-county families! The Chinati Foundation invites local families to free workshops at the museum. Occurring from 8-11am Saturday mornings on Chinati’s grounds, participants will explore selections from the museum’s collection, engage in artmaking experiences, and meet fellow Big Bend residents.
On July 24th, educators will introduce families to Dan Flavin’s untitled (Marfa Project). Upon viewing Flavin’s fluorescent light artworks, participants will work together to make a colorful and playful direct animation film. This workshop will explore concepts of light, motion and transformation.
The July 31st event is all about construction. Families will experience Donald Judd’s 100 untitled works in mill aluminum and consider notions of space, shape and placement. Participants will then work together to build a city out of wood blocks and pieces.
Light snacks and water will be provided to participants.
All ages are welcome; young children are encouraged.
Enrollment is limited to 25 total participants per session.
Priority will be given to military families, veterans and first-time museum attendees. Please sign up for your workshop of choice by visiting chinati.org/july-family-days/ or contact Molly Bondy at 432 729 4362 EXT.email@example.com.
