Join Intuit for Art After Work, a free series of facilitated art-making workshops inspired by outsider and self-taught art and artists from the museum’s collections and exhibitions. This month, museum educator Mayra Palafox will facilitate a workshop inspired by artist L.V. Hull. In the in-person workshop, participants will embellish and repurpose found objects into works of art by painting them in the signature style of the Mississippi artist.

Art After Work is for everyone, including beginners and people who say they “are not artists.” We can all be artists! It is a guided workshop, and instruction will begin at 5 p.m. in the museum’s performance space.
