Join us at Urban Arts Crawl for the opening party of Framed: Step Into Art™, created by the Minnesota Children’s Museum. Children and adults can enjoy a robust (imaginary) noontime meal in Grant Wood’s Dinner for Threshers, climb into a tent and explore camping gear in John Singer Sargent’s Camp at Lake O’Hara and add “corn husks” to the flower tower in Diego Rivera’s Corn Festival. Enter Clementine Hunter’s Big Chicken and get behind the reins of a giant rooster. Visitors can explore a small collection of Mona Lisa prints featuring the original and famous parodies, then step behind a cutout version and replace Mona Lisa’s face with their own.
Around the corner at The Rockwell, be one of the first to see summer spotlight exhibitions including Andy Warhol’s Art Factory and Nancy Lamb: Through the Artist’s Lens.

Featured artist: Cynthia Cratsley-Harrington
Cynthia currently lives in Corning. She graduated with honors from Nazareth College in Rochester and studied art on the graduate level in Italy.
“I rediscovered printmaking in 2009 when my son was working on one for a high school printmaking class. I love the entire process of making block prints: conceptualizing the idea, carving the block, printing by hand, and then adding color with pencils. I’m inspired by experiences in my life, animals, and the natural world. Over the past several years I have been especially interested by images of fertility from different cultures I enjoy studying fertility images from art history and re-creating them in my own likeness or with my own adaptations.“
