Family Saturday: Puppets on the Move

Installation view, 3-D Doings: The Imagist Object in Chicago Art, 1964-1980, Tang Teaching Museum

We will look at the elaborate puppets by artist Karl Wirsum in 3-D Doings: The Imagist Object in Chicago Art, 1964-1980, and then create our own moving puppets using paper cut outs, fasteners, fabric, markers, buttons, and various embellishments.

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. All materials will be provided, and be prepared to get messy and have fun. And dress accordingly! Reservations are required and may be made one week in advance of each program. For additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
