FAMILY ART SATURDAY: DESIGNING FOR PLAY @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Nov 10 @ 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
FAMILY ART SATURDAY: DESIGNING FOR PLAY @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Kids, design your very own playground! Artist Nils Norman’s Play Structure creates an opportunity for open-ended play inside the museum. Made up of platforms, ramps and ladders, this artwork invites people to escape predictable interactions in public spaces and instead, use their imaginations. In this activity, engineer a never-before-seen play structure of your own. Create a take-home model of your unique design out of colorful popsicle sticks.


UMOCA invites children of all ages and their families to discover our changing exhibitions and participate together in hands-on art making activities led by a trained educator. Each activity connects to a brand new idea, medium or theme explored by an artist currently exhibited in the museum. Projects are suitable from toddler to tween in a wide range of abilities.

Family Art Saturday is offered free of charge.
Museum admission is a $5 suggested donation to help support our programming.

BRUNCH FOR BIBLIOPHILES: CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE WITH UMOCA @ Finca | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Join us Sunday, Nov. 11th for a brunchy book club and social hour hosted by UMOCA. Finca will offer a special Mimosa and/or Bloody Mary exclusively for the club.

We will start at 10:30 AM sharp, but hope you’ll come by as early as 10 AM to get to know your fellow book club members. Membership in Brunch for Bibliophiles is free, but each person will be responsible for their own book and tab at Finca.

The book selection for November is “The Bell Jar” by Sylvia Plath


“Sylvia Plath’s shocking, realistic, and intensely emotional novel about a woman falling into the grip of insanity.

Esther Greenwood is brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time. In her acclaimed and enduring masterwork, Sylvia Plath brilliantly draws the reader into Esther’s breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes palpably real, even rational—as accessible an experience as going to the movies. A deep penetration into the darkest and most harrowing corners of the human psyche, The Bell Jar is an extraordinary accomplishment and a haunting American classic’ – goodreads
