SAT, MAY 24    FAMILY ART PROJECT: WASH-AWAY PATIO
Visiting artist Em Rooney invites us to create an environment of our liking for outdoor, spring enjoyment. Working primarily with air-dry, natural clay, make an inventive “patio” to take home with fossil-like imprints and structural features. Leave your patio in the rain and observe as it returns to nature. Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon.
