Family Art Saturday: Glorious Goo @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Oct 8 @ 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

FAMILY ART SATUDAYGlorious Goo

The abstract forms in Cara Krebs’ artwork look soft and squishy, as if to both draw you in and push you away. Make your own goo in the color of your choice, and seal it in plastic for a miniature sculpture that you can take home. Take a goo recipe when you leave so you can recreate the project in the future!

SENSE/ABILITY Tour @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art

Created in collaboration with Easy to Love, Hard to Raise, SENSE/ABILITY aims to foster an accepting and understanding museum environment, in which sensory-sensitive children and their families will feel comfortable and included while discovering social concepts found in our exhibitions.

Winter/Spring 2016 tours will embrace a youthful perspective on the exhibitions currently in UMOCA’s gallery spaces. The global social issues that are expressed through the art will be simplified and edited by our educators in a way that that can be grasped and recreated in a specially tailored children’s art-making activity following each tour.

Leeza Meksin’s large-scale installations explore relationships between buildings and bodies by dressing up inanimate structures in architectural fashion.

Like the other artists featured in the exhibition, Object[ed], Tove Storch uses the language of sculpture to visualize possibilities that exist outside of rigid expectations.
