Participants will enjoy a free, family-friendly chimera cartooning workshop during the next in-person Do the Mu on Saturday, July 2, 2022. Anyone—toddlers to adults—may stop by the Museum between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. to join instructor Doug Laubacher.
Laubacher is a cartoonist and art educator from Northeast Ohio. His comic strip, Unbound, can be read in the Tuscarawas County Bargain Hunter. A member of the National Cartoonist Society, he teaches cartooning in art centers and libraries throughout the region.
Do the Mu is a monthly drop-in, hands-on intergenerational outlet for creativity. The Massillon Museum receives operating support from the Ohio Arts Council and ArtsinStark. This project is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
While at the Museum on July 2, visitors can see Missing History of Massillon: Unheard African American Stories in the Aultman Health Foundation Gallery; Accessible Expressions Ohio in the Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery; Tiger Legacy: The Story Continues in the Paul Brown Museum; and Collection Snapshot: Faces of Massillon Business in the Photography Gallery. The Paul Brown/Massillon Tiger Football History Timeline, the Immel Circus, the American Indian Gallery, the Massillon History Gallery, and the Albert E. Hise Fine and Decorative Arts Gallery are always on display. A 1916 Massillon-manufactured Russell steam engine can be seen in the garden on the east side of the building.

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.
