Children and their families will get to participate in art activities including Sunprints, Sugar Skulls, Woven Wonders, Witches Hats, and Trick-or-Treat bags. Activities are inspired by AMSET’s current exhibitions, Deborah Luster —Passion Play and Woven Wonders: Textiles from the John Gaston Fairey Collection of Mexican Folk Art, which are on view through September 22-November 25, 2018 in the main galleries.
