Interactive program led by Pittsburgh-based art educator Dave English

The Natural Order of Things aims to grant visitors the opportunity to explore their relationship to everyday objects. Artist-educator Dave English will lead an interactive program; visitors are given the chance to create their own assemblages. The gallery will have two stations available for visitors: one filled with random toys, trinkets and found objects; the other, supplied with fasteners, glues, and other adhesives. Join the curators for this fun-filled afternoon to learn about the art of building assemblages and to create your own takeaway artwork.
