There are a couple of awesome events happening tomorrow (May 5th)!
The first is the craft sale at the Craft Studio on Mizzou’s campus. You can’t really find much info online, but I know it runs from 10am to 1pm in the basement of Memorial Union. I went last year and bought a bunch of fantastic handmade clay bowls of various sizes. They had the most beautiful glazes! I gave a couple as holiday gifts and kept a few of them for myself. They are priced wonderfully, so I hope to grab a few more to have on hand for gifts. They also had some knit and crocheted scarves and some sewn goodies. There is always a variety, so if you have time over your lunch break stop by and check it out!
The Museum of Art and Archaeology is also hosting an event tomorrow from 4 to 8pm called Slow Art Day. It is actually an annual global event. The idea is that you’ll slow down and enjoy a few select pieces of artwork instead of running through the museum trying to everything at once. It is free and open to public and they’ll be serving some snacks and wine. You can learn a little bit more on their website.
I also want to mention one event going on this weekend in St. Louis. I know it’s not in Columbia, but a lot of people might be traveling for Mother’s Day this weekend! The 24th annual Art Fair will be running Friday through Sunday at Laumeier Sculpture Park.
Oh! And don’t forget to stop by the Columbia Art Leauge to see the Red Show. I stopped by the other day – there are some amazing pieces. I specifically enjoyed the drawings of the pomegranate and the Tootsie Roll Pop wrapper.
