MassMu’s Free March Do the Mu
Join the Massillon Museum and instructor Susan Scheetz on Saturday, March 4, for an Introduction to Origami Do the Mu. Stop by the Museum anytime between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m., with no reservations required. All ages are welcome and all supplies are provided.
Origami is a Japanese word meaning “paper folding”; however, the art of creating sculptures from paper has its roots in many ancient cultures. Traditional Origami uses a square sheet of paper and a series of folds to create the finished design. Modern Origami also utilizes rectangular sheets of paper, the most popular being dollar bills. Participants will learn the basic folds and notations used in Origami and leave with several examples that they created themselves.
Do the Mu is a free monthly drop-in, hands-on intergenerational outlet for creativity. The Massillon Museum receives operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, ArtsinStark, and the citizens of Massillon. This workshop is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Guests on March 4 can view the Celebration in Art, Tigers and Bulldogs: Origins of a Historic Rivalry, Soul Food, and Collection Snapshot: Faces of Massillon Business exhibitions. The Paul Brown/Massillon Tiger Football History Timeline, Judith Paquelet American Indian Gallery, Edward and Louise Mahoney Family Gallery, Massillon History Gallery, Immel Circus, Innovators of Massillon, and Albert E. Hise Fine and Decorative Arts Gallery are always on display.
MassMu is located at 121 Lincoln Way East (Ohio Route 172) in downtown Massillon. It is now open during regular hours Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. A visit is always free.
