Event description

Description

Throughout the 1930s and 40s, Jamaican artist John Dunkley created nightscape paintings that tell complex stories of the nature, people and scenes of his homeland. After a guided tour in the galleries, participants will use special glow in the dark materials to create their own mysterious "drawings in the dark."

Families and Folk Art is held the first Saturday of every month. This program introduces children ages 4 to 12 and their accompanying adults to folk art through interactive discussion-based tours in the galleries followed by hands-on artmaking activities inspired by objects in the museum. Museum admission is always free. Space is limited; registration required.
