Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to everyone. The Museum is open today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kids 12 and under are free, so brave the elements and bring the whole family. (Don’t forget the heated, underground parking at the Museum!)
On Tuesday, January 18, Chief Educator Barbara Brown Lee will be giving a Gallery Talk on “The Lunatic Fringe” at 1:30 p.m.
This Friday, MAM After Dark returns with MAD HOT, a night filled with Salsa dancing, live music by Cache, a salsa tasting station, Bloody Mary’s courtesy of Jimmy Luv, and as always, DIY and Photobooth, plus food by Cafe Calatrava.
And, as a special feature for Friday, join Curator Mary Weaver Chapin at 8 p.m. for a special tour of Framing a Decade in the Koss Gallery. This extraordinary exhibition of sixty prints and drawings from Old Masters through Contemporary artists is just a small sampling of the over 3,000 acquisitions of works on paper since 2001.
Finally, stop in over the weekend for drop in tours, Story Time in the Galleries on Saturday, and the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio on Sunday. Winter is a busy time here at the Museum. To learn more, visit www. mam.org.
