Wild Wednesdays at Mint Museum Randolph

The Mint Museum and Stevens Creek Nature Center have partnered to make Free Wednesday Evenings a little more wild! Drop by the lawn at Mint Museum Randolph to get up close with the animals who have inspired artists throughout history, pick up an animal-themed art kit, and go on a self-guided Seek and Sketch Hunt through the museum. The museum is open and free every Wednesday evening from 5-9 PM. Pack a picnic and make an evening of it!

NexGen Virtual Hangout with Julio Gonzalez

Meet local artist Julio Gonzalez and find out how he adapts Maya traditions to forms of contemporary popular culture. This multidisciplinary artist will lead a drawing demo using mythology and story telling as inspiration.

Gonzalez’ work is currently on display at Mint Museum Randolph as a part of Interventions, a new program that contextualizes works in the Mint’s collection.

If you feel like being creative, you can work along with Julio – or just sit back and watch him create. Do you have a favorite myth or legend you would like to explore in your drawing?

This program is for all teens ages 14 – 18.

If you are interested in more programs like these, sign up for NexGen Mint, a program that gives teens access to exclusive events and art-focused hangouts.
