Celebrate the start of WheatonArts' creative season with this free kick-off event highlighting our many daily offerings and hands-on programming! We invite visitors to engage with our new Glass Studio Director and Netflix Star, Alex Rosenberg, who will demonstrate the use of glass and water to create optical lenses. Explore thought-provoking exhibits in the Museum of American Glass and Down Jersey Folklife Center, showcasing glass collections and the complexities and values of traditional arts through modern-day times. Experience various artist demonstrations throughout the campus, including pottery, paper art, broom making, large-scale murals, and more. Discover a series of hands-on projects to create, including pine-needle basket making, macrame rope keychains, and glass-fused magnets in the Education Studio. Enjoy a bite to eat from a selection of food vendors and listen to soft jazz with Gil Thompson & Chris Angelino.
Wheaton Springs offers every visitor the chance to explore, experience, and create across a campus that inspires and heals the senses. Admission to all WheatonArts exhibits and artist studio demonstrations are FREE and open to the public, part of "Family Days! Presented by PNC Arts Alive!" Learn more at wheatonarts.org.
