Art is 100 Anniversary Finger Puppets
Saturday, May 17, 2014 | 1–4 pm
The Utah Museum of Fine Arts has been collecting and exhibiting portraits for 100 years! Let’s use portraits of fantastic people and their costumes as subject matter for puppets. Each of us will make two different characters from the museum to help the paintings “walk and talk” and tell their stories.
Saturday, June 21, 2014 | 1–4 pm
Come to the UMFA to explore a new exhibit that looks at the Bingham Copper Mine, the largest man-made excavation on earth, and the many artists’ views of it throughout the years. On this Third Saturday, we will be making our own art out of copper, hammering and shaping it into flat sculptures called bas reliefs.
