A rose by any other name…

a souvenier from First Saturdays for Families

Saturday, April 4, was our latest First Saturdays for Families event. If you’re not familiar, each first Saturday of the month, we invite kids aged 4-12 and their families to come to the museum to learn a little something about art and create their very own project, based on an exhibition we’re currently showing. I love that we can offer these kinds of projects, all completely free to the community! This past Saturday involved a project using Model Magic. Not having young kids at home, I was unfamiliar with Model Magic, but apparently you can create sculptures with it – it’s like modeling clay. I was given a lump of the stuff and have a really rudimentary, and quite pink, blocky sculpture on my desk that I made with it. My officemate says it makes her want to bite it (it sort of looks like pink bubble gum. What can I say? I’m a writer, not a sculptor!)
This photo is of a small white Model Magic rose, complete with hips and everything. Thank you, unidentified artist who left this for us! It’s really a lovely little piece. And it looks much more elegant on my desk than, say, my die-cast Millenium Falcon.
