MCD Library MakeArt: Merced Open House

May 11 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Merced Branch Library

The Merced Branch’s Open House connects community and library—bringing people into the shared space, collaborating with local organizations, and getting the neighborhood excited about reading.

MCD is excited to partner with Merced and creatively activate the space! Join us at the new and improved MakeArt van for in-person, exhibition-inspired crafting or take home a FREE MakeArt Kit and museum admission!

FREE event and drop-in activity, all ages are welcome.

Funding for the Museum of Craft and Design’s MakeArt programs is provided by the special interest license plate featuring the image of Snoopy, with permission and support from Peanuts Worldwide (Section 5169 of the Vehicle Code) for the Museum Grant Program under the California Cultural and Historical Endowment. Additional support for MakeArt is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

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.
