Welcome a new friend to the Greene Family Learning Gallery February 17, 2012

Hello families!

We have a new puppet to welcome into the Greene Family Learning Gallery. Check him out in the photo below with our Coordinator of Museum Interpretation, Nicole Cromartie:





How did Nicole come up with this puppet idea? She looked at The Century Vase, which is part of the High’s permanent collection, for inspiration. You can see this vase for yourself on the 3rd floor of the Stent Wing. Once you check out the artwork, write us and let us know what kind of puppet you would be inspired to create!


Happy Weekend,



Second Sunday Funday February 9, 2012

Filed under: Upcoming Events — erinkdougherty @ 9:33 pm

Looking for something fun to do with the whole family this weekend? Stop by the High on Sunday anytime between 1 and 4 p.m. for our Second Sunday Funday program. We’ll be exploring how Giorgio de Chirico and Fernand Léger used shadow and machines in new and interesting ways. Try your hand at shadow puppets and work to make a mechanically inspired character.


As a bonus, check out our new exhibition The Art of Golf. Once you get some fore-tastic inspiration, head to the workshops to make art that takes a cue from the sand trap.


See you Sunday!
