Kids can be docents, too! Share your own ideas about a work of art through writing, close-looking, and role-playing activities led by artist and educator Amanda Yates Garcia. This program is inspired by Andrea Fraser’s Museum Highlights: A Gallery Talk on view in Take It or Leave It, and is part of the Hammer Museum’s new Close Encounters series, in which artists encourage families to look closely at art, experiment, and create together.
Developed with the whole family in mind, these lively and illuminating encounters with art are for adults and kids ages 5 and up. Families are invited to look closely at works of art in the galleries and then create art inspired by what they see.

Featuring Casey Carle, a bubble artist extraordinaire who has “burst” onto stages all over the world with a flair for showmanship and infectious energy for bubbling – from the intricate to the massive.
Come see the beauty, wonder and fun of bubbles as Casey Carle brings his amazing one-man show combining spontaneous comedy, jazz music and brilliant bubbling to the Armstrong Theatre. Among the many featured skills are fantastic fog-filled bubble sculptures, blobs of helium-filled foam, bubble ping-pong, trapping an audience member (or two?) inside a gigantic soap bubble and thousands of bubbles filling the stage. Amazement and amusement for ages 5 through 95.
