Hone your art detective skills and discover something new about contemporary art at the Kemper Museum. The third Saturday of each month is Scavenger Saturday for families. Children with adults may pick up a self-guided activity at the Visitor Services Desk and follow the clues on this “ART-astic” adventure. When finished with the activity, children may pick up a take-home, art-making activity kit. No reservations are required.
Scavenger Saturday at the Kemper Museum are made possible with generous support from the R.A. Long Foundation.

Film Screening: black enuf*"
With special guest Director Carrie Hawks
A queer oddball seeks approval from black peers despite a serious lack of hip-hop credentials and a family that “talks white.” The quest for undeniable acceptance of their racial identity takes Hawks from Missouri to New York and halfway around the world in the animated documentary black enuf* (22 min.). Join director Carrie Hawks for an informal discussion following the screening.

ArtReach: Session Three (Ages 6–8 10:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m.) (Ages 9–12 1:00–3:00 p.m.)
In her installation, the artist Firelei Baez incorporated hidden symbols from Africa, the Caribbean, and Kansas City to create a piece of art about America’s complex history. In this ArtReach workshop, participants will learn about, explore, and use symbols to create a mixed media piece of art that explores the relationship between Kansas City and other parts of the world.
Due to the popularity and high demand for ArtReach, and to be able to impact as many families as possible, registration will be limited to one workshop only per child.
Carrie Hawks, director of black enuf*, leads an informative and creative workshop on analog and digital animation for all ages. Bring your imagination and learn skills to produce 21st-century animation.
