Participants will enjoy a free, family-friendly paper marbling activity using shaving cream during the next in-person Do the Mu on Saturday, June 4, 2022. Anyone—toddlers to adults—is welcome to stop by the Museum between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. to join instructor Kat Francis for a workshop about creating marbled stationery.
Kat Francis, a mixed media artist, earned an MFA at Columbus College of Art and a BFA at The Ohio State University. In her work, she honestly, yet playfully, illustrates American history and daily life. She observes and creates in a collage-like manner to illustrate reflections on modern life. Moving frequently and learning to adapt to new places, Francis has a deep appreciation for unique surroundings and storytelling.
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 June 4, visitors can see Accessible Expressions Ohio in the Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery; Tiger Legacy: The Story Continues in the Paul Brown Museum; Clicking for a Cause in the Lower Level Lobby; and Collection Snapshot: Faces of Massillon Business in the Photography Gallery. The Paul Brown/Massillon Tiger Football History Timeline, the Immel Circus, the Massillon History Gallery, and the Albert E. Hise Fine and Decorative Arts Gallery are always on display.
The Massillon Museum 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.
