The Duluth Children’s Museum’s exhibit hall has transformed into a forest workshop for fabric art and woodworking creations.
Kirsten Aune and John Finkle were selected for the museum’s 2017 Arts in STEAM residency, putting their work on display for visitors and providing live demonstrations of their crafts. Past artists in the program have included Mary Plaster with larger than life puppets and Sarah Agaton Howes demonstrating Ojibwe beading. Each artist also creates an art piece that becomes part of the museum’s permanent collection.
“There are so many incredible local artists and our residency program gives them a chance to showcase their work for a unique audience – kids and their families,” said Robert Hadaway, Duluth Children’s Museum Creative Director.
The exhibit is on display today through November 19 during the museum’s normal business hours. An opening reception is set for Thursdayfrom 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
The Duluth Children’s Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Located in Lincoln Park at 115 S. 29th Ave. West, the museum engages children and its visitors with interactive exhibits, educational programming, creative play, and opportunities to connect with its extensive museum collection.
