Outdoor Pop-Up Art Experience: Alexander Calder Kinetic Sculpture

Program Description:. Alexander Calder, who was born into a family of artists, was a pioneer in Kinetic Art. He was most famous for his mobiles. These mobiles, hung down from the ceiling high above, were made of flat pieces of metal, steel or aluminum attached with wire. These mobiles would sway and change shape as they moved with just the slightest breeze.

In this workshop, kids (with help from their grownups) will create their own “kinetic” sculpture mobiles using wire, aluminum and other objects.

This program is for children ages 3-7 and space is limited. Pre-registration is required.

Cost:  MHCM Members: $6; non-members $10 per child (parents / caregivers FREE)
