The Muskegon Museum of Art's popular Postcard Salon returns in 2015, offering the opportunity for anyone of any age to create small works of art to display at the museum from February 26 through March 12. Artwork in almost any media will be accepted into this non-juried show, but all the artwork must be 4 x 6 inches in dimension. The artwork must arrive at the museum by February 22 to be included in the exhibition.
Special events for all ages take place as part of the MMA's Festival of Trees each November. Advance tickets to this year's events: Holiday Cheer! Michigan Beer! and Deck Your Halls Home Decorating Workshop can be purchased at the MMA Gift Store or by calling 231.720.2580. Holiday Cheer advance tickets are now discounted 50% to $17.50 each. Tickets to Teddy Bear Breakfast have sold out. Tickets to Festival Senior Day and Family Day can be purchased at the door on the days they take place.
The Muskegon Museum of Art's 10th Festival of Trees opens Thursday, November 20. The Festival will be open through Sunday, November 30. In what has become a local tradition, volunteers will transform Museum galleries into a festive arrangement of Christmas trees, décor, a gingerbread village, and model train display. The themed decorations and trees are created by local designers and sponsored by individuals and organizations in the community. Visitors can bid on the trees, décor items, and donated gift baskets during the Festival’s on-going silent auction. Special events and activities are also part of the Festival.
Japanese Warriors, an exhibition of Japanese toy robots and action figures from the Warren Schwartz Collection, will open at the Muskegon Museum of Art on November 6. The public is invited to attend a reception that evening from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Schwartz will give a talk about the exhibition in the MMA’s auditorium at 7:00 pm. Admission to the talk is also free.
The Muskegon Museum of Art will present several programs in conjunction with its Remember and Rebuild: Picturing the National September 11 Memorial & Museum exhibition. The program schedule begins this week with a community videotaping project, and will include a lecture by the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum Chief Curator and Vice President of Collections, a panel discussion with Muskegon firefighters, a film series, and a free family activity day.
