From 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm daily, families can experience, experiment and unleash their imaginations during Spring Break at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Sparked by Shuvinai Ashoona’s contemporary Inuit artworks that blur the boundaries between reality and fantasy presented in the exhibition Shuvinai Ashoona: Mapping Worlds, families will experiment with different materials ranging from pencil crayons, pastels to graphite and watercolour crayons to create drawings inspired by imaginary creatures and the natural world in the Making Place held in the Gallery Forecourt.
Inspired by Brian Jungen’s Cetology (2002), families will be invited to add their found plastic sculptures of sea creatures to an accumulative installation that will be installed in the Gallery Rotunda during the week of March 23 to March 27, 2020. The Gallery’s team of Art Agents will offer interactive activities designed for the whole family based on the exhibitions Shuvinai Ashoona: Mapping Worlds and lineages and land bases.
Collaborating with local artists in the community is one of the most unique features about spending Spring Break at the Gallery. Interactive artist workshops are designed for ages seven and up, however all ages and abilities are welcome.
