Family Day: Personal Places 

When: Sun., Nov. 15, 1 p.m. 2009
smartmuseum.uchicago.edu/heartland
See how artists can transport us to places real and imaginary during an afternoon of fun art activities, storytelling, and creative journeys through the Smart Museum's galleries. Explore contemporary artists' take on the American Heartland, travel back in time through eighteenth century prints of famous Roman sites, and get carried away by self-taught artist Joseph Yoakum's colorful landscapes. Listen to stories about home, region, and travel, collage vintage photographs of historic places to create your own imaginary landscapes, and collaborate with others to map a large-scale story. Each participating family will receive a passport to guide them through their travels at the Smart. All ages welcome, though activities designed for children ages 4–12. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
