Mead Art Museum at Amherst College Presents
Dance Into Art
Pioneer Valley Community Celebration!
Dance into art at the Mead Art Museum in Amherst! The museum, which houses Amherst College’s art collection, is currently hosting a special exhibition featuring work from artists Robert Henri and Nick Cave, whose work explores the human form through examination of dance and movement as a form of cultural expression.
The museum will host a family-friendly event on April 21st, from 11am-3pm, where families can see music and dance demonstrations, tour the museum and learn about current exhibits, and take part in hands-on art activities.
Kids can make their own hand puppets and masks inspired by the works shown from Henri and Cave, and can use the performances taking place throughout the day as inspiration as well.
The event offers an opportunity for families to view great art, as well as a chance for kids to learn about ways of using sources of inspiration. For more information, call the museum at 413-542-2000, or visit www.amherst.edu.
