Friday, Feb. 09, 2018
“Utah Air Quality” is the theme of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art’s (NEHMA) next “Family Art Day,” Saturday, Feb. 17, from 11 a.m-.2 p.m. in Utah State University’s Merrill-Cazier Library room 101. ?NEHMA has partnered with the Merrill-Cazier Library while the museum is closed for construction.
NEHMA and USU Libraries are excited to feature the winning designs of the 2018 Utah High School Clean Air Poster Contest with an awards ceremony for the Grand Prize Winners and a clean air-themed art activity.
Museum educational staff will assist participants in creating unique rear-view mirror hang tags and posters to remind drivers about the hazardous effects of idling. The goal is to spread awareness about Utah air quality.
In addition to making their own hang tags and posters, participants will get to see the top clean air poster entry finalists for the Utah High School Clean Air Poster Contest created by students representing seven high schools in Cache and Grand County. Local businesses and organizations have generously donated prizes for the winners and Caffe Ibis is donating refreshments.
NEHMA’s Family Art Days are free and open to the public. These family-friendly events on the third Saturday of each month offer hands-on art activities for all ages. Upcoming Family Art Days include Saturday, March 17 and Saturday, April 21.
“The Utah High School Clean Air Poster Contest is a?perfect example of what we like to do at Family Art Day,” said Alyson Decker, education coordinator for the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.?“We connect the visual world?to important issues and give the community a chance to explore?different art making?materials.”
NEHMA is located on the USU Logan Campus. While the museum is closed for construction, it will continue to host events such as Family Art Days and Museum + Music at other venues like the Merrill-Cazier Library. See the museum’s website (artmuseum.usu.edu) to stay updated on museum events.
