Slow Art Day
Saturday, April 6 | 10:30 a.m. & 2:30 p.m.

Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: to help more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art. When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries. The most important discovery they make is to see and experience art without an expert (or expertise). Join us at Maryhill for a slow art experience. We will begin with refreshments and a chance to meet others in the group, after which we will visit one or two works of art to see through the eyes of the artist and connect with our own spirit.

Meet for refreshments and introduction in the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center, followed by a slow art experience led by Curator of Education, Louise Palermo. Program is at 10:30 a.m. and repeats at 2:30 p.m.

Cost: $5 members / $15 non-members (includes admission, coffee and refreshments). Register in advance online or by email to education@maryhillmuseum.org.
Poem in Your Pocket Day...Ekphrastic Style!
Thursday, April 25 | all day

This day is about combining the art of language with the visual arts. Ekphrastic means “art inspired by art,” and in that vein, we invite you to bring a poem or create a poem that connects to an artwork at Maryhill. This can be a poem written by you or written by your favorite poet.

At 1 p.m., or any time prior to the day, arrive at Maryhill Museum of Art and explore the galleries to find an artwork that most closely connects to the poem you have selected. You can also find a work of art you find inspirational and create a new poem specific to that work. At 2 p.m. we will gather in the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center and visit the various artworks. Each participant will read their poem, followed by a group discussion on connections and meanings. On Poem in Your Pocket Day, anyone may show a copy of a favorite poem at the door and receive free admission.

Poem in Your Pocket Day was established by the Academy of American Poets as an annual event to bring poetry into our everyday lives. 
The exhibition Mélange: Works on Paper from the Permanent Collection, is receiving rave reviews from visitors. On view are more than 40 prints, drawings and watercolors drawn from Maryhill’s collection, including works by noted Northwest artists such as Rick Bartow, Betty LaDuke, Richard Thompson and Henk Pander. The subject matter ranges from landscapes and nature studies to interiors, portraits, still life and abstract works. Also on view are the special exhibitions Maryhill Favorites: Still Life, Théodore Rivière: Sculpture, and a new rotation of the Théâtre de la Mode.

Teachers as Artists: Exploring Identity
We are showcasing the talents of regional arts educators inTeachers as Artists, an annual juried exhibition in the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center. This year we invited arts educators to submit works that explore their identity. Work by Washington arts educators is on view through May 26, 2019; Oregon teachers will be featured this fall.

A New Way to Explore Maryhill: The Discover Room
With our seasonal re-opening, we have unveiled a new DISCOVER room and activities. This special place allows you to become a curator, an artist, an explorer, and fashion expert, all while having a great time at the museum.
Start your visit to Maryhill in the DISCOVER room, where you can plan the day by looking at examples from the collection and their location within the museum.
Pick up a map and a carrier containing DISCOVER activities and head out to explore the collections that most interest you. The DISCOVER activity cards will guide your group through active looking and understanding, and are designed so that adults or children can “take the lead.” 
Read more on our blog about how you and your family can DISCOVER Maryhill!
The program is sponsored by a generous gift from Judith A.Lackstrom and Robert E. Morrow.
