NEHMA Hosts Family Art Day featuring "Botanical Art"
Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018
The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art (NEHMA) at Utah State University will host its monthly Family Art Day Saturday, Jan. 20, at the USU Merrill-Cazier Library from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
January’s theme features “botanical art” from the museum’s collection and coincides with the USU Library exhibition “Roots: The Nature of Books” on view now in Special Collections through January 26. Participants will examine plants and create their own descriptive drawings with pen and watercolor.
The museum’s education staff will assist attendees of all ages to create botanical-themed artworks based on their observations of actual plant samples and the “Roots” exhibit.
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’re grateful to the USU Library for hosting Family Art Day while the new NEHMA is under construction,” said NEHMA Administrative & Events Coordinator, Andrea DeHaan. “It’s a great opportunity to connect our collection to exhibitions on view in their space.”
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.
