Westmoreland @rt 30 in Unity hosts Family Day activities, musical performance
A long holiday weekend calls out for some family fun, which a group of folks found on Nov. 29 at Westmoreland @rt 30 in Unity.
The museum opened its doors to at least three generations for free Family Day activities, intended to entice the youngest ones to appreciate art through play.
Activities started with a scavenger hunt in which participants scanned gallery walls to find featured artworks.
Visitors then could delve into bins of random objects to create still life tableaus, in conjunction with an exhibit in the second-floor gallery pairing portraits with still life works.
Next up in the studio space were “making faces” activities inspired by the current “Self-E” display of photos and drawings submitted by students and other area residents, which was inspired in its turn by the current selfie craze.
Students from Stage Right! offered a musical performance sure to keep listeners in the holiday mood.
Cookies and punch topped off the day.
