Join us as we celebrate Watercolor Month and Claire Falkenstein for our Second Saturday Family Day in July. Drop into the Education Laboratory to participate in a watercolor resist technique painting workshop using watercolors, crayons and salt. Create a fantasy underwater world with free materials provided by the Museum. 

Museum docents will also lead a watercolor painting session at Falkenstein’s sculpture, U As A Set, 1965. Explore the spatial design of the work’s copper tubing structure in which the artist explored 4d penetration into natural structures. Taking sculpture’s aged patina and water feature as inspiration, visitors will create watercolor studies through guided activities. Enjoy this opportunity to get better acquainted with the magical sculpture that highlights the McIntosh Building near 7th Street on upper campus


Third Thursday Film Screenings

Join us on the third Thursdays of the month for movies in the gardens of Patron’s Plaza with a live electronic music score from 7:00–9:00pm. Bring a picnic and blanket and we will supply the popcorn!  Chair seating provided by the Museum will also be available.

Curated German Expressionist silent film selections relate to a mural by Terry Schoonhoven in our Public Art Park called White City, 1982. The work was inspired by a 1932 horror film entitled Vampyr.  Learn more about this public art work on the Arts Council for Long Beach website.
