‘Fam Day’ celebrating ‘Modern Spirit: The Art of George Morrison’
We spend a day celebrating this special exhibit in a special way the whole family may enjoy:
- Create art in our make-and-take “Earth impression” activity from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m..
- Engage in guided sketch sessions at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.; enjoy “modern” dance performances at 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. in the South Courtyard.
- Plus, take in a special double feature of films featuring two giants of mid-20th century contemporary art: Standing in the Northern Lights (1991, 30 minutes) showcases the art of George Morrison, showing him working in his studio. The film includes interviews with his wife, Hazel Belvo, and author Jamake Highwater. Meanwhile, Unconquered: Allan Houser and the Legacy of One Apache Family (2008, 32 minutes), is the story of the Houser/Haozous family explores the incarceration of a people, their history after being freed, and a family’s personal expression of these experiences through art. The film spans the 1860s through today.
