Bechtler By Night: Swing Into Spring

Friday, March 15, 2019
Shake off those winter blues and Swing into Spring this month during Bechtler By Night. If you’re ready to be done with winter, a spring flower art collage in our first-floor lobby is sure to brighten your day! This activity is perfect for the gardeners and non-gardeners alike and will be sure to activate your green thumb. Enjoy a refreshing gin and tonic while creating your spring flower art collage - served in our first-floor lobby.

Wire is an amazing art medium — it can be bent to form a variety of lines, shapes, letters, and images, assuming at times natural poses. In recognition of our newest second-floor exhibition, Sculpture from the Bechtler Collection, guests are invited to transform repurposed metal and aluminum wire into abstract sculptures - located in our second-floor classroom. What sculpture can you craft?
