Parent Artist Gather

Rochester Art Center will host monthly gatherings as a way to realize the goals of artist parent Eamon O’Kane’s child oriented interactive art installation, Froebel’s Studio: Institute of Creativity. Bring your children to play and listen to invited parent artists tell their stories about the journey as artists and parents. Eamon O’Kane transformed his art practice when he became a father in order to create an art installation that both young children and their parents could participate in, to use shapes and forms and make art together. Each of the Minnesota creatives invited to speak will discuss how their art practice changed due to becoming a parent. The program is free and open to the public, milk and cookies provided.
