MassMu Presents Do the Mu—Free Workshop

MassMu Presents Do the Mu—Free Workshop
 
Visit the Massillon Museum on Saturday, May 4, for Do the Mu—a collage workshop with Susan Mentrak inspired by Gee’s Bend quilts. Two quilts by Qunnie Pettway (1943–2010) are featured in the main gallery exhibition, Home Again: The Embodiment of Africa through Art and Fabric. 

Participants of all ages are invited to stop in any time between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. This workshop is free and no registration is required.  All supplies will be provided.
 
Instructor Susan Mentrak is the ceramics studio manager at MassMu. She majored in illustration and graduated in 1992 from the Columbus College of Art and Design. She has had her designs in Nordstrom, the New York Times, Lark Books, Inc.com, Little Thing, Stuffed, and Doll Collector magazines.  In 2016 she began working primarily in ceramics.  Her work incorporates narrative and graphic design. 
 
This month’s workshop, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), is part of MassMu’s 2024 NEA Big Read, featuring the book Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. An initiative of the NEA in partnership with Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. To learn more about the national program, visit arts.gov/neabigread.
 
Do the Mu is a free monthly hands-on intergenerational outlet for creativity. The Massillon Museum receives operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, ArtsinStark, and the citizens of Massillon.
