HMA Giving Away Free Holiday Activity Packs While Supplies Last

As part of the exhibit of artist-decorated trees titled Manpower Presents Art on a Limb, the Education Department at the Huntington Museum of Art is giving away free holiday activity kits for elementary students while supplies last.

“The art activity at Holiday Open House is always so popular, and since we had to cancel that event again this year because of the pandemic, we wanted to provide young people with art activities they could complete at home during the holiday season,” said HMA Director of Education Cindy Dearborn. “These activity packs are definitely geared toward young visitors.”

Visitors may pick up activity packets beside the Palette Tree in HMA’s Virginia Van Zandt Great Hall during regular museum hours while supplies last. Anyone with questions may call HMA at (304) 529-2701.

The Manpower Presents Art on a Limb exhibit continues through Jan. 2, 2022, at the Huntington Museum of Art. A virtual tour of this exhibit will be posted to HMA’s Facebook page on Dec. 28 at 7 p.m. as part of the 4th Tuesday Tour Series at HMA.

The exhibit features the work of artists in The Huntington Calligraphers’ Guild, Tri-Area Needle Arts, West Virginia Bead Society, and the Western Weavers Guild of the West Virginia Basketmakers Association. The Palette Tree in HMA’s Virginia Van Zandt Great Hall features individual artist palettes featuring the artwork of dozens of regional artists, including Paula Clendenin, the late Charles Jupiter Hamilton, Lee Ann Blevins, and the late Chuck Ripper, among others. 

This exhibit is presented by Manpower.

This program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
