With Halloween right around the corner, Casey Riordan Millard’s upcoming UnMuseum installation at the Contemporary Arts Center, Come Follow Me
, is the perfect way to inspire creativity in your favorite ghouls and goblins. Millard — best known for her sculptural installations, drawings and paintings of recurring childlike protagonist, Shark Girl — has received recent commissions from both the CAC and the Cincinnati Art Museum and was one of only seven local artists chosen to receive the newly created $6,000 Cincinnati Arts Ambassador Fellowship grant from the city
. To celebrate the opening of her multimedia commission in the CAC’s child-focused gallery/art-making space, the artist will be leading an art-making activity for families and children ages 5-10 as part of the museum’s regular Family Saturday programming. The installation (part of the FotoFocus biennale) will include stop motion animation and explores the concept of a bad day as seen through the eyes of Shark Girl. 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27. Free for members; cost of admission for non-members. Contemporary Arts Center, 44 E. Sixth St., Downtown. contemporaryartscenter.org.
