The Museum will be transformed for 3 hours of activity including, interactive tours, live mural painting, discussions on death care, collaborative drawing of an exquisite corpse, Kids Surgery Station, and more.

Live art with three artists | 4 – 7 pm
Local creatives Shannon Doyle, Madeline Hawkins and Michelle Dawson will create live a progressive drawing of a body on one of the Museum’s longest walls. With a 50-minute limit for each artist, the body will grow and morph across the evening with each artist’s unique response, culminating in a strange and unique creature.
Come and watch them create and ask them what inspired their interpretation from the Cure All exhibition and how they create!
Free form artmaking for all | 4 pm – 7 pm
Join the collaborative drawing table in the middle of the Museum, where a giant exquisite corpse artwork will be developed on paper. Everyone’s welcome! Our Live Art artists will join in the fun too!
