Visitors are invited to celebrate the wonders of sculpture at Maryhill Museum of Art on Sunday, July 6 from 1 to 4 p.m., by creating a sculpture with the Museum educator and meeting guest artist Rachel Hibbard.
"Bring your entire family for an afternoon of fun activity and exploration," said Courtney Spousta, curator of education. "Make your own unique sculpture with some wild and wacky materials. Discover the Museum's famous Rodin sculptures, including The Thinker, during a special art-scavenger hunt activity. Ask the guest artist a question. It'll be a great day for families to visit Maryhill."
Artist Hibbard has installed a site specific kinetic sculpture, Towers, for the event. Hibbard uses the forces of nature to activate and help shape her work. Her work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibits. She will be in the outdoor sculpture garden throughout the day to talk with visitors about her work.
Other activities include visiting the Museum's Outdoor Sculpture Invitational exhibit. The exhibit features 13 large scale outdoor sculptures by artists from throughout the Northwest. Included in the exhibit are mystical figures, lyrical abstracts, and a romantically flamboyant gateway with chimes.
All supplies will be provided free.
