Family Saturday: Cabinets of Curiosity

We will look at David Ireland’s playful cabinet of curiosity, Spanish Corner Cabinet, in the exhibition If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day: Collections of Claude Simard. Ireland includes ice cream dishes, colored rectangles, a spool of wire and other unusual objects inside his wooden cabinet. We will build ours from cardboard boxes, then add little trinkets we make out of various materials to put on our shelves.

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 – 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition.

All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required—for additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
