Second Saturday

Join us from 12-3 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month for free, limited, socially distanced, outdoor community and family-focused day of art talks, hands-on art making, performances and gallery adventures for visitors of all ages. Visitors can design their experience based on their schedule and the activities that interest them most.

Second Saturday: Art Laboratory
Saturday, August 14 | 12-3 p.m.

Expand your artistic boundaries! August’s Second Saturday will be all about exploring and experimenting with different art supplies to design and create your own original artwork. From cardboard, duct tape and markers to crepe paper, string and glue, we’ll have it all so you can create without barriers! Not sure what you’ll make? Professional teaching artists will assist and offer pro tips and tricks! We’ll also have an array of inspirational art books to review and guide your design.

The only question is, what will you create in the Art Laboratory? A colorful coffee filter hat? A cardboard suit of armor? Maybe an origami masterpiece? The possibilities are endless! Visitors will also enjoy live music, and tasty treats and drinks from Café Contemporary will be available for purchase.

Second Saturday no longer requires timed tickets to attend drop by any time between 12 and 3 p.m. Masks are recommended but not required to participate. We’ll monitor the number of visitors in each indoor space as part of our COVID precautions.
