Family Arts Day

The Humboldt Arts Council is hosting Second Saturday Family Arts Day at the MGMA on Saturday, July 8th at 2:00! This monthly event is always FREE! Families are invited to participate together in this monthly art-making workshop that complements current exhibitions at the Museum. These workshops are geared toward intergenerational learning and creating in a museum setting. Discover the MGMA through fun, educational activities for kids and families!

For everyone from beginners to art experts, Second Saturday Family Arts Day offers diverse opportunities for the whole family to view, understand, and interact with the exhibitions and art on view.

On July 8th, we will be celebrating the artwork of the late Ralph Johnson. Pulling inspiration from Johnson’s three-dimensional sculptural work we will be building our own mixed-media sculptures. Participants are invited to explore the exhibition and then to gather in the rotunda for the day’s project with assistance and guidance from art educator Genevieve Kjesbu. All materials will be supplied.

The Morris Graves Museum of Art, located at 636 F Street, Eureka is open to the public noon-5p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. Suggested admission is $5 for adults; $2 for seniors (age 65 and over), military veterans, and students with ID; children 17 and under free; Families with an EBT Card and valid ID receive free admission through the Museums for All initiative, Museum members are free. Admission is always free for everyone on the first Saturday of every month, including First Saturday Night Arts Alive!, 6-9 p.m., and Family Arts Day at the MGMA!
