Family Day at the Bechtler

MAY 8, 2010 10 A.M. TO 4 P.M
Bring your family for a day of artful fun in and around the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. Try your hand at creating art in the styles of Warhol, MirĂ³, Calder, Picasso and other greats. Sketch the museum and the Firebird or join in creating a public work of art. Explore the unique style of the Bechtler’s architecture. Learn how a cantilever works and how to build an arch and keystone or examine the blueprints for the museum building.
Look for Family Day activities on the Bechtler plaza, in the lobby, and across Tryon Street in The Green park.
All Family Day activities are free. Admission to tour the museum on Family Day is discounted to $4 for adults; children up to 18 years are admitted free.
