Join us at Danforth Art to celebrate the power of art to change how we see the world. Our special Free Family Days will inspire you to explore your own creative voice through gallery talks, hands-on art-making and other creative offerings. Art activities are inspired by the works in the galleries. Programs are designed for all ages.
Free admission from 12–5pm \ Activities from 2–4pm
In the School’s studios:
• Cut Paper Creations (inspired by Jacob Lawrence’s John Brown Series on view in the Museum’s galleries)
• Historic Writing: The Art of Calligraphy
In the Museum’s Galleries:
• Focus on Framingham History: Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller (guided tours in the Landman Gallery
– including a look at some of Fuller’s actual tools)
• A Journey Through Time (a self-guided activity for families to fill-in a timeline based on artwork
on view in the galleries)
• Meet abolitionist Julia Ward Howe, as portrayed by local historic storyteller Libby Franck. Howe was a
supporter of fellow abolitionist John Brown during America’s pre-Civil War era and this performance
connects with Danforth Art’s exhibition of Jacob Lawrence’s The Legend of John Brown silkscreen
print series, on view through February 23.
