Let's reimagine life in the Renaissance! Each weekend in October we'll travel back in time to explore art and culture of the Renaissance. Join us as we become master artists creating musical instruments, symbolic coats of arms, art for our tabletops and magnificent ships to sail around the world! Our inspiration this month will come from the special exhibition, Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe.

Every Saturday and Sunday! No registration is required for this free event. Drop-in, make, and take a fantastic piece of art home with you!
