“Hooray for May!”, a free family art day at The Center for Contemporary Art, will take place on Saturday, May 10th from 1-4 p.m.

“Hooray for May!” will bring together families from the local community for a fun and interactive day of making art. A variety of hands-on art activities for kids of all ages and parents alike will take place in The Center’s three art studios and in the outdoor pavilion, and include a variety of creative projects to keep or give on Mother’s Day.

A highlight of “Hooray for May!” will be a unique art experience led by renowned New Jersey artist and muralist Dan Fenelon, who will work directly with families to help them create large, vibrantly-colored banners that will be prominently displayed in local business locations throughout the Bedminster area. Fenelon has created murals across the United States including the Peace Mural that welcomed the Dalai Lama to the 2011 Newark Peace Summit.

Rounding out the afternoon will be family-friendly guided gallery tours of The Center’s current exhibitions, an art story time, a community hula hoop weaving project, and a creative do-it-yourself photo booth. Light refreshments including Friendly’s ice cream, cupcakes from Pirate Cupcake Baking Company, and Herr’s potato chips in a variety of flavors will be available. All children attending “Hooray for May!” will receive a “swag bag”, and student members of The Center will receive a special gift. Free t-shirts will be given out to the first fifty children.
