MassMu’s September “Do the Mu!”
Enjoy a free, family-friendly activity during the in-person Do the Mu at MassMu on Saturday, September 3, led by local artist Erika Reynolds. Visit the Massillon Museum between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. to sculpt a snail from air-dry clay, create its shell from found objects, and paint it to give it your unique twist! All supplies will be provided.
Reynolds is a multimedia visual artist. Inspired by her love for fantasy, dark art, and surrealism, she has created a whimsical aesthetic in her work—featuring the cute, the creepy, and the strange. Reynolds graduated in 2014 with an associate’s degree in applied sciences and graphic design. Since 2016, she has created art in a studio spot at Canton’s Hub Art Factory. Exploring a variety of art forms led her to her true passion—sculpture.
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 workshop is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Guests on September 3 can view Missing History of Massillon: Unheard African American Stories in the Aultman Health Foundation Gallery; Artist to Artist in the Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery; Daric M. Gill: The Absolutes in Studio M; “Carry On”: A Century of Swing 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 Massillon History Gallery, the Immel Circus, Innovators of Massillon, 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.
