The fun continues at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts this summer, with family-friendly exhibitions, free Paint Days, Wild Art Wednesdays and more! Admission is free and the community is enthusiastically invited to come and join the fun.
Elephant & Piggie in WE ARE ART! (A Mo Willems Exhibition)
In the Main Gallery this summer, the Pearl is thrilled to host Elephant & Piggie in WE ARE ART! (A Mo Willems exhibition), organized by The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts.
This free exhibition features 75 works including a selection of original illustrations, color digital renderings, early sketches, dummy books and more, as well as a cozy reading area for families to enjoy these wonderful stories together. Since their debut in 2007, Elephant & Piggie have entertained millions of children and adults with their hilarious escapades that impart valuable lessons on manners, empathy, emotions, and—most importantly—friendship.
Mo Willems is one of the most celebrated children’s book authors and artists working today. A New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, Willems has been recognized with multiple awards for his beloved Elephant & Piggie early reader series.
The Pearl’s presentation of Elephant & Piggie in WE ARE ART! Is generously sponsored by AAUW North Harris County Branch. The exhibition continues through September 2, 2023, with regular museum hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is FREE. For more information visit pearlmfa.org.
Keittoodles: Enter a World of Color and Imagination
In the Cole Gallery this summer, the Pearl welcomes visitors into a world of color and imagination with Keittoodles by local artist and retired teacher, Beth Brubaker.
Summer Art Camps
Just a few opportunities remain for the Pearl’s Summer Art Camps! Designed for ages 5 to 8 and 9 to 12, the week-long camps are offered Monday through Friday through August 4, in half-day or all-day formats.
Each week features a different theme, such as Landscape Adventure, Crazy Comics and Manga, Out of This World, and Smart Art. Campers spend time in the galleries of the Pearl each day, and explore new mediums, techniques and principles of art through hands-on visual art lessons, outdoor activities, and special instruction from guest artists. Through it all they learn artistic processes, art history, curate an exhibition of their own work, and discover the artist within themselves.
