Join us for an artful afternoon of outdoor artmaking, scavenger hunts, and special guests from Lifting Spirits Miniature Therapy Horses.
Artists have been fascinated by horses for a very long time. You can find art featuring horses on every floor of the museum. How did each artist bring the animals to life through the appearance of movement, creative use of color, and even interesting textures? Create your own artful interpretation of horses using a cardboard base layered with patterned papers. Then take your horse on a walk through the museum on a scavenger hunt for equine art. Happy trails!
