Nassau Museum's Family Day
Converse, collaborate and create together when Nassau County Museum of Art welcomes families for one of its special museum days. Explore the current exhibition, “Fool the Eye,” a study of how artists use perceptual illusion to fool viewers into thinking they’re seeing something that’s not there, along with supervised art activities. Find inspiration in exhibit-based gallery conversations and explore new art materials with the museum’s educator. Art projects will explore concepts seen in the wide variety of trompe l’oeil works on view. Perceptual tricks and optical illusions will challenge visitors — of all ages — to reconsider what the they think they see and how to think about the various works on view. Discover what’s real and what isn’t. Start off the New Year by exploring your family’s creative side.
Sunday, Jan. 7, 1 p.m.; art activities start at 1:30 p.m. Free with museum admission. $12, $8 seniors, $4 12 and older. One Museum Dr. (off Northern Blvd.), Roslyn Harbor. (516) 484-9338 or www.nassaumuseum.com.
