Tuesday, April 3, 2-4 pm: WW1 & Recycled Art
In honor of our WWI America exhibit come join us as we keep the spirit of soldier art alive by crafting with recycled materials. During WW1, many soldiers spent weeks hiding out in trenches. To keep occupied, they often created art by recycling materials they had plenty of access to: artillery shells. Though we won’t have real artillery shells to shape and mold.
[We will also be hosting a canned food drive. For this event, bring in canned goods to receive FREE admission for children and students and 50% off adult admission.]
