Throughout the day on Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13 families are invited to look closely at the form and colors of the beautiful sculpture in Concord Collects – a new exhibition featuring twenty remarkable works of art – and then make their own sculptures. On both days Museum educators will engage visitors in close-looking discussions exploring the extraordinary art and sculpture in Concord Collects. On Saturday join a conversation about the Tang and Song ceramics from ancient China and on Sunday examine the vivacity of Childe Hassam’s North Shore. The celebratory weekend culminates on Monday, October 14 with free admission to the Museum on Indigenous People’s Day, which is generously supported by Middlesex Savings Bank.
