Harley Spiller, FF Alumn, MUSEUM IN A BAG, American Craft Museum, Feb. 2, 2002
Family Workshop with Inspector Collector (aka Harley Spiller)
Saturday, February 2, 2002, 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Join us for this
exciting family program - a think tank for the creation of museums in the future.
After leading a brief tour of the current exhibition, Objects for Use: Handmade
by Design, Inspector Collector will lead a discussion of the various components
that have made up museums since their beginnings so long ago. Participants are
then given access to a gigantic table of knickknacks, doodads, bric-a-brac,
and curios of all different kinds. Selecting items of interest, they are then
given tools of the museum trade (labels, felt, display mounts, etc.) and encouraged
to create a brand new type of museum. After each family demonstrates the unique
characteristics of their homemade museum, there will be a small "opening"
with snacks and drinks. Finally, participants will be shown how to re-create
their museum display at home. Limited to 20 participants. Fee: $5.00 per person;
$2.50 American Craft Museum and Franklin Furnace members.
