Drop in and enjoy a fun-filled Family Sunday of artmaking, storytelling, and performances!

Create art with exhibiting artists and art educators that explore the theme “Sensing the Land” in connection with our Ground Signals exhibition. Interactive dance performances await you at 1pm or 2:30pm. Everyone is welcome at this free event—children must be with an adult.

Artmaking Activities

Engage your senses as you step into Ground Signals featuring paintings, videos, sculptures, and audio recordings that reconsider our relationship to land and water. Weave a wearable book with Roxanne Charles whose large, collaborative installation of sound, plywood, and woven panels greets you as you enter the Gallery. Listen to Marie Côté’s ceramic bowls with songs and sounds from nature, and let her work inspire you as you collaborate with her on a clay painting in our art studios and sculpt your very own listening vessel to take home. Make sure to visit Brandon Gabriel’s art station where he’ll share stories and you’ll get to work with pastels and stencils, riffing off his vibrant painting in the exhibition that documents his epic canoe journey.


Join a dance mash-up with The Wild Moccasin Dancers and Streetrich Hip Hop Society at 1pm and 2:30pm in the Studio Theatre. Both groups will teach you some dance moves! Pick up your free tickets on arrival.
