Art Cart: Native American Travel Bag (Public Event)

Sunday December 08, 2013
12:00pm - 4:00pm
Spencer Museum of Art
For this month's Art Cart activity, families and other groups will look closely at a "parfleche," or carrying case, made by Plains peoples. Participants will then enjoy designing and making their own mini tote bags inspired by the techniques used to create the parfleche on view, which exemplifies abstract Native American art of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The Art Cart may be enjoyed free of cost every weekend at the Spencer. Parking is also free behind the Museum on weekends.
