The Smart Museum and the Hyde Park Art Center have teamed up to offer an afternoon of art-related fun this Mother’s Day. Learn about the colorful and quirky artworks on view in the Smart Museum’s exhibition, Your Pal, Cliff: Selections from the H.C. Westermann Study Collection, choose your favorite as a setting for your family portrait, and make and mail an illustrated letter. Recharge with special treats and drinks in honor of Mom.
Arrive at the Hyde Park Art Center with an object from home to turn into art, get messy making prints, and enjoy a dance performance by the Moving Architects. Take part in activities at both locations and get a prize. University of Chicago shuttles will run between both locations every 30 minutes from 12:30-4:00. Best for children ages 4-12, accompanied by an adult.
