Saturday, March 14th from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art, is a free Community Art Day, where visitors and families can participate in creating Styrofoam Block Relief Printing with the Manager of Education, Amber DuBoise-Shepherd.

This project is open to all ages. Visitors and families are encouraged to work together to make their own Styrofoam Block Relief Print. After making their own art prints, families and visitors can check out the current exhibition Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints: Popular Art of the Northeast of Brazil before the exhibit comes down the following Monday.

All ages are invited to attend this free event. All of the necessary supplies will be provided. Participants should dress accordingly since there will be wet ink that visitors will be handling. The program will begin at 1 pm but it will be a come and go activity.

During Community Art Day, admission to the museum is also free. This will be the last weekend to view the current exhibition, Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints: Popular Art of the Northeast of Brazil. The permanent gallery will be open for viewing with the only two Egyptian mummies in Oklahoma and various other amazing art and artifacts from around the world.
