Bottle Dolls with Artstillery

This event has already passed Location: Hamon Entrance

Help us close out Black History Month and our exhibition Contemporary Art + Design: New Acquisitions with local performance art nonprofit Artstillery. Guided by artist Noel Williams and Dallas resident Paula Hutchinson, you will reflect on your personal identity before creating a glass bottle doll reminiscent of the ones made by kids in a West Dallas neighborhood in the 1950s. 

Kits are free and include printed instructions, a QR code for a video tutorial, and enough supplies for one participant. 

Reserved kits will be available for pick-up at the Flora Street Entrance from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. When picking up a kit, stay in your car and a DMA staff member will place the kit in your trunk.
