Museum Experience Day
Saturday, July 29, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Cool off at CAMH by experiencing two immersive exhibitions: “Atlas, Plural, Monumental,” an exhibition featuring interactive artworks by artist Paul Ramírez Jonas, and “A Better Yesterday,” a colorful and imaginative exhibition featuring artwork by JooYoung Choi, Jack Early, and Lily van der Stokker.
Experience Typewriter Rodeo, a quartet of poem-typers from Austin, Texas, who create custom, on-the-spot poems on any topic you choose using vintage manual typewriters. Carry away a one-of-a-kind memento of your day out at the Museum!
Engage with “Public Trust” (active each Saturday from 1–5PM through August 5, 2017), a participatory artwork by artist Paul Ramírez Jonas that asks Museum visitors to examine the value of their word by declaring a promise.
Contribute to a collaborative paper and tape environment inspired by the imaginative worlds and alternate realities created in A Better Yesterday. Pick up an Art Guide, take a FAQ Team-led tour, make an original work of art using whatever is in your pocket, and contribute a poster, love note, or want ad to the public monument “The Commons”!
The Moon Rooster taco and hot dog truck will be present to satisfy lunchtime cravings. Plus, our friends from Froeschl’s Ice Cream will be joining us with their yummy and inventive flavors—the perfect treat for a hot day!
Museum Experience Day is hosted in partnership with the Houston Museum District. Be sure to visit our neighbors at the The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and The Jung Center of Houston, Texas and check out their exhibitions and activities.
