Virtual Family Day: Black is Beautiful

February 14 @ 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM CST

Free
Celebrate Black History Month by learning more about the extraordinary Black artists who created art to document and honor the beauty, struggle, and resilience of Black people. Create portraits of people who inspire you using various techniques drawn from African American artists like Wadsworth Jarrell and Elizabeth Catlett. Watch a shadow-puppet show by local artist and activist Ty Chapman, and make your own shadow puppet. Sing along and hear tales affirming love from Nothando Zulu, founder of the African Storyteller’s Alliance, and create your own love letter for Black Lives this Valentine’s Day.
Families can also pick up a free Family Day Artist Tote at Mia’s Third Avenue entrance February 13-14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You’ll find materials to make a shadow puppet, colorful portraits, and collages to celebrate Family Day. Family Day Artist Totes are available until supplies last.
The materials in the kit complement the Virtual Family Day program’s activities but are not essential to enjoying the activities.
