SMA Art Cart: Clothing Clues

The Art Cart is a drop-in activity station where families and other groups can enjoy hands-on art projects together, taking inspiration from the works on view in the Museum's galleries. This month's activity focuses on how clothing and dress can give clues about people in works of art. Look closely at portraits in the exhibition Corpus, then create decorative figure of your own using the materials provided. Groups may spend as little or as much time as they like on their projects. Parking is free behind the Museum on weekends.

In 2013, Van Go and KU received the inaugural Outstanding Community & Campus Collaboration Award at the Campus Compact Heartland Conference on Civic Engagement.
