This Saturday! Wire Art Workshop | Hillwood Museum
Join Hillwood for family fun and hands-on art making, crafting from wire, inspired by the special exhibition Kristine Mays: Rich Soil.
Saturday, July 17, 2021
11 a.m.-Noon and 2-3 p.m.
Have fun twisting, bending, and looping wire to form trees and flowers, taking inspiration from the gardens, and design your own wire masterpieces that you can display or turn into a pin, pendant, or keychain.
Contemporary American artist Kristine Mays’s life-size, three-dimensional wire sculptures emerge throughout the gardens for this enchanting exhibition. Mays breathes life into wire, transforming an industrial product into fascinating and moving works of art. Springing to life throughout the 13 acres of formal gardens, 29 sculptures surprise visitors as they dance in the garden beds, bursting forth from the plant life. Explore these figures as they transform the grounds for the second ever installation of art in the gardens.
