Art Alive Family Days: Crafts, Activities and More
Sponsored by the
F. X. Matt II Memorial Fund of The Community Foundation
of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, Inc.
Art Alive! returns for fun during the mid-winter recess. Throughout the day, kids can take part in crafts and activities created by artists and inspired by Museum exhibitions. A children’s film will be screened free of charge at 2 p.m. in the Sinnott Family - Bank of Utica Auditorium.
Each year, from Columbus Day through April, the Institute hosts four Art Alive! Family Days. These events are designed to connect with the Museum’s youngest patrons during school breaks.
Art Alive! draws families from throughout the area to the Edward Wales Root Sculpture Court, where they might build dancing puppets, explore a virtual moonscape, meet Grace, the Utica Zoo’s barred owl, or create their own mobiles or a paper quilt rainbow.
