Art in the Atrium: Flags

Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art
1:00–3:00 p.m.
FREE | All ages

In Kimsooja’s installation To Breathe–Zone of Nowhere, colors and designs from different countries are layered to create a visual and symbolic breakdown of hierarchies and to communicate an idea of a world in which all humans can unite to celebrate our differences. Join us at Kemper Museum for a unique drop-in art making experience inspired by Kimsooja’s artwork that challenges you to explore flag design and symbolism and to create your own piece of flag art!

And we're in for a treat: Alastair Wright teaches saxophone at the University of Central Missouri and has performed around the world. Come hear how his research into traditional musical styles from diverse global cultures has culminated in the creation of contemporary compositions inspired by music from places such as Ethiopia, Armenia, Turkey, Hungary, Egypt, China and Japan.

RSVP on Eventbrite:

*Please note: Kemper Museum family programs require that children up to age 12 be accompanied by an adult
