Summertime Free Family Days at the Contemporary Art Gallery – WORD PLAY


On the last Saturday of every month, the CAG invites all ages to drop-in for short exhibition tours and free art making activities that respond to our current exhibitions. This new initiative is presented in collaboration with ArtStarts on Saturdays. For more information visit: http://artstarts.com/weekend or http://www.contemporaryartgallery.ca/events/family-day/

This summer’s family days begin with WORD PLAY- we will be playing with words!
This workshop will be based on the mural that has transformed the facade of our building; it is created by Mexican artist Stefan Brüggemann and is titled: Headlines and Last Lines in the Movies. The artist has paired together recent news headlines with the last lines from well-known and classic Hollywood movies; we will be tracing individual words and phrases from the mural to create our own text-based works. All welcome!
