“Lifelike” Family Day
Saturday, November 17th
Panel Discussion, Art Making Activities, Music, Caricature Artist, Story Quest and more!
Come to NOMA on Saturday, November 17th for this fun-filled day of family-friendly activities. Enjoy music, art activities, scavenger hunts, StoryQuest, and more. Programs and activities will start at 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. (Museum hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
Explore the new exhibition LIFELIKE, and decide for yourself, “Is it real?” LIFELIKE invites a close examination of artworks based on commonplace objects and situations, which are startlingly realistic, often playful, and sometimes surreal.
Programs and activities run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and include a caricaturist, performances by “Uncle Wayne” Daigrepont and the Hot Potatoes, and “Alice in Wonderland” presented by Skin Horse Theater. A conversation on Lifelike between Siri Engberg, curator at the Walker Art Center and Cameron Shaw, editor of Pelican Bomb will be at 2 p.m.
