The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art (NEHMA) at Utah State University hosts its monthly Family Art Day Saturday, Nov. 18, at the USU Merrill-Cazier Library from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. This month features “Flag Making.” Participants will learn about flags and their compositions by viewing art inspired by flags from the museum’s collection and through the International Culture Exhibit 2017 on view in Merrill-Cazier library’s lower level.

Attendees will be helped by museum education staff to create their own autobiographical flag with colors, shapes and emblems that best represent their background and heritage or they can create an artwork inspired by a flag.  

As with other NEHMA programming, Family Art Days are free and open to the public. These family-friendly, hands-on events provide a creative outlet and learning opportunities catered to all ages.

“We are excited to continue offering our monthly Family Art Day program on the third Saturday of each month at the Merrill-Cazier Library while the museum is closed for an expansion and renovation,” said NEHMA Executive Director, Katie Lee-Koven. “We welcome all ages – not just kids – to join us and enjoy making art.”

NEHMA is located on the USU Logan campus. The museum is currently closed for construction but will continue to host events such as Family Art Days at other venues like the Merrill-Cazier Library. See the museum’s website to stay up-to-date on NEHMA events.

Due to campus recess, November will be the last Family Art Day of the year, but the events will   resume in January 2018.
