This free program takes place on the first Saturday of every month and invites children ages 4-12 and their families to make a creative project in conjunction with exhibitions. No registration required. All materials are provided and families can take home their artwork.
 
On Saturday, Feb. 1, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., join us at the ASU Art Museum to create colorful multimedia collages based on "This is Not America," an exhibition that combines art and social change through both emerging and established artists. We will have a variety of collage materials and techniques for all ages and interests. Instructors will be here to help you discover the creative world of collage!

"This Is Not America, Part II," currently on view in the Americas Gallery through March 12, 2014, looks at the intersection of art and social change through the lens of the ASU Art Museum’s collection in conversation with emerging and established artists. Works are paired as a form of call and response in order to create a dialogue around current issues related to protest and poetic gestures within the aesthetics of resistance. The exhibition title takes a cue from Alfredo Jaar’s seminal 1987 public art video intervention at Times Square in New York City, "A Logo for America," a three-part video animation that plays off the notions of “America” and its relationship to citizenship, homeland and borders. "Part III" of the exhibition will be on view March 22 through July 19, 2014.

The museum is free and open to the public. Tuesday: 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. (May through August until 5 p.m.) Wednesday–Saturday: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Additional educator hours by appointment: Mondays and before 11 a.m. Tuesday–Thursday. Closed Sunday, Monday and holidays. For more information contact the museum at 480-965-2787 or visit asuartmuseum.asu.edu.
