Virtual Family Day: Foot in the Door

Celebrate community love and joy during this Family Day, inspired by “Foot in the Door,” an open exhibition for Minnesota artists of all ages held once every 10 years. Hear thoughts on the all-virtual exhibition from Chappal, a talking slipper from the Indian subcontinent, and be inspired to make your own “foot” wear. Try collaborative art projects, like co-creating a creative power grid and playing the Exquisite Corpse, a surrealist drawing game. Take advice on how to reach new heights, love fiercely, and wear fabulous outfits with a video made by Chicks on Sticks stilting around Mia.

During the Family Day weekend (November 7–8), from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., pick up a free Family Day Artist Tote at Mia’s Third Avenue entrance. The totes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis; no registration is required.

The materials in the kit complement the Virtual Family Day program’s activities but are not essential to enjoying the activities.

On November 8, click here for the full content, videos, and art-making tutorials.
