Open Studio: Furr-tastic Felines

Sunday, October 29, 2017, 12 - 4 PM

On National Cat Day, join us for free family activities inspired by the exhibition Divine Felines. Take a family-friendly tour into the past and learn about cats in ancient Egypt (12:30 and 2:30 pm). Then, return to our studio to make cat mummies and amulets to protect your Halloween treats. From 12–3 pm, a Smithsonian conservator will demonstrate how to care for mummified objects and share X-ray scans of objects on display. Halloween costumes are encouraged! Candy generously provided by Mars, Inc. All ages welcome with adult companions.
