As I consider the Fourth of July, images of fireworks, sunshine, barbecued chicken, buttery cobs of corn, and strawberries fill my thoughts – with a soundtrack of laughter and children’s delight-filled shrieks.
I wish my co-workers – who are enjoying this rare closed day at the Woodson Art Museum – a holiday surrounded by family, friends, and great food.
As I consider Thursday, the fifth of July, at the Woodson Art Museum, images of giraffe eyelashes, a mule’s ear, an ostrich head, and a horse tail fill my thoughts – with a soundtrack of exclamations of awe, joy, and amusement.
Visit the always-free Woodson Art Museum and treat yourself to The World According to Federico Uribe on Thursday, July 5, and through Sunday, August 26.
Night Out @ the Woodson – the first Thursday of each month – offers extended hours: 9 am-7:30 pm, a drop-in hands on art project, and an Art 101 presentation. This month, explore Uribe’s artwork during a gallery walk with Museum educator Catie Anderson, 5:30-6:30 pm, and build a fireworks-inspired chenille-stem sculpture in the classroom anytime between 5:30 and 7 pm. Delight in yoga in the soothing setting of the sculpture garden – if weather permits this outdoor-only session – led by a 5 Koshas Yoga and Wellness instructor. Please register at www.5koshasyoga.com/yoga/class-schedule and bring a mat or blanket. The session will be cancelled if weather requires; watch the 5 Koshas Facebook page for updates.
May this holiday blog post find you with butter-stained elbows and munching on a strawberry while watching fireworks.
