Passport to Art: A Voyage with a View
Sunday, June 10 | Noon – 3:00 p.m.
Travel to new places through the Impressionistic paintings of Jane Peterson. This artist was adventurous, and you can be too as you create an on-the-go sketchbook. Make a lucky scarab charm inspired by Peterson’s Egyptian scenes and compose your own imaginary landscape collage using famous Italian views. Take a photo at the Gone Global selfie booth. At 1:00 p.m. take a guided stroll through Jane Peterson: At Home and Abroad. Don’t forget to check out the artwork in the Ecos: Resonancias de Historias Latinas de Carolina del Sur and create a piece inspired by Latino art. At 2:00 p.m. meet some of the artists whose work is in the show! This drop-in program features a new hands-on art project each month. Free.
