Community is invited to create an art project made of recyclable materials that will be used in an Easter Egg Hunt, March 30 & March 31
Delray Beach, FL – February 2013 – The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum joins in the fun of spring with two new programs designed to bring out the artistic child in everyone. Museum staff welcomes supporters and friends to collect their recyclable materials and bring them to the Williams Cottage to create a unique art sculpture that will be put to good use the next day as part of a fun Easter Egg Hunt on the complex grounds.
New! Springtime Festival – Saturday, March 30, 2013, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
In celebration of spring, the Spady Museum invites the public to join them in the Williams Cottage for an egg-decoration and egg-stuffing party, complete with pastries and beverages created by Alex Jones, a culinary student at West Boca High School. Families are encouraged to bring recyclable materials to create an art sculpture that will house and hide Easter treats. Delray Beach mural artist Sharon Koskoff helped direct the project, which will incorporate materials donated by families. Participants are encouraged to bring empty milk cartons, juice boxes, egg cartons and other recyclable items into a large, colorful, collective art piece! The hands-on project will be on display March 31 at the Easter Egg Hunt on the Spady Museum complex, 170 NW Fifth Avenue, Delray Beach. Children and their families will also be decorating real eggs with paint and stuffing plastic eggs with candy and treats. Free, donations welcomed.
