Student docents at the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of
Georgia have created a special family event for grandparents and
grandchildren, to be held at the museum Saturday, Oct. 26, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Creating Memories and Sharing Stories: The Art of Carroll Cloar,”
encourages grandparents and grandchildren to make memories together as
they take a tour of the exhibition “The Crossroads of Memory: Carroll
Cloar and the American South.” Time in the galleries will be followed by
an activity that asks visitors to create their own work of art
featuring a symbol of their family and using Cloar’s techniques.
The student docents will lead the activities as part of the art
education special topics and service-learning course “Engaging Art
Museum Audiences as Student Docents,” taught by museum curator of
education Carissa DiCindio.
This event is free and open to the public and supported by the Friends
of the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens Community Council on Aging and the
UGA Office of Service-Learning.
Free parking is available at the
Georgia Museum of Art’s lot on Carlton Street and surrounding surface
