MakeArt Accessible: Access After Hours

April 11 @ 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Museum of Caft and Design

Spend your evening at the museum! The Museum of Craft and Design has partnered with the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired to bring after-hours art-making, haptic experiences, and art exploration to the galleries.

Designed for those who prefer a more intimate museum experience, Access After Hours mirrors MAKE and MakeArt Family Day with exhibition-inspired activations throughout the space, tactile touchpoints, and a highly descriptive museum tour with ASL interpretation. Come, create, and connect over MCD’s current exhibitions Mr. Roboto and Indie Folk: New Art and Sounds from the Pacific Northwest!
Pre-registration is encouraged and attendance will be capped at 35 people. Please note that the tour will start at 5:30pm.

Indie Folk: New Art and Sounds from the Pacific Northwest

February 24–June 30, 2024

The Pacific Northwest is home to a unique artistic ecosystem involving craft traditions, pre-industrial cultures, and Indigenous and settler histories. Like folk art, the exhibition features handmade works that are unpretentious, and often blur the line between functionality and aesthetics.
