Celebrate Earth Day - Nassau County Museum of Art
Add to Calendar 21-04-2013 21-04-2013 15 Celebrate Earth Day Calling all kids. You are invited to help create a gigantic group sculpture using recycled materials with artists from the NYC-based art collective, Free Style Arts Association. The Free Style educators work magic with everyday materials, transforming them into abstract art work, using crazy lines, shapes, and colors. Educators from The Science Museum of Long Island join in on the fun and will be bringing along some critters, maybe even a tortoise or a snake. They'll also work with nets to explore organisms in the Museum's ponds. Also featured on Earth Day are family gallery tours of the Museum's current exhibition, AB-EX / RE-CON: Abstract Expressionism Reconsidered. Take the tour to check out how abstract expressionists employ elements and principles of art. The day's activities will be documented and posted to the Museum's Facebook page. Museum admission plus $8 per family materials fee. No reservations needed, but please bring along some plastic supermarket bags to contribute to the project. Weekend parking fee is $2 (members, free) http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=133020 Nassau County Museum of Art true DD/MM/YYYY

Venue Description: Spanning 145 acres, the Nassau County Museum of Art is one of the largest suburban fine arts museums in the country. The museum includes formal gardens, outdoor sculptures, the Arnold & Joan Saltzman Fine Art Building, and the Art Space for Children. The Saltzman museum is housed in a Georgian mansion designed by Ogden Codman Jr., and features mainly 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century works, including internationally acclaimed and local artists. Its permanent collection includes the likes of Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, and Roy Lichtenstein.

The Art Space for Children, housed in a separate building, features changing exhibitions of topics and material of interest to children. Family Sundays, free with admission, offer a day of hands-on art activities and gallery. Art classes are available for all ages and a special summer program is put on in July and August. Once outside the museum's walls, visitors can explore vast gardens designed by Marian Coffin, considered some of her finest. The gardens include specialty sections devoted solely to roses or azaleas, as well as fountains, shrubs, and walkways. The Sculpture Garden has 40 sculptures that interact with the natural environment.

Nassau County Museum of Art is located 25 miles east of New York City at 1 Museum Drive in Roslyn Harbor. It is open Tuesday-Sunday 11am-4:45pm, with the Art Space for Children open 12-4:30pm. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $4 for children 4-12 and students. There is a $2 parking fee on weekends. For more information, call 516-484-9337 or visit nassaumuseum.org.
