Figge Art Museum Hosting Free Family Day February 26th
The Figge Art Museum in downtown Davenport is giving families in the Quad Cities a chance to see and explore the iconic art museum for free. The Figge is hosting a free family day the last Saturday in February and registration times are open for families to sign up for Saturday's family event.
The Figge Art Museum (225 W 2nd St, Davenport) is hosting a free family day on Saturday, February 26th. This is a chance for families to enjoy the Figge Art Museum without paying a dime.
Free Family Day at the Figge is Saturday, February 26th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This event gives families a chance to explore the galleries and enjoy live art-making in the studios with art projects inspired by artist Doris Lee, at no cost.
Lee's exhibition Simple Pleasures: The Art of Doris Lee is currently on view. According to the Figge Art Museum, Lee, born in Aledo, Illinois, was one of the most recognized artists in the country during the 1930s and 1940s and a leading figure at the Woodstock Art Colony.
The Figge's website states,
"...Simple Pleasures reveals her remarkable ability to merge abstraction with the appeal of the every day, offering a distinctive visual identity that successfully bridged various artistic “camps” that arose in the post–World War II era."
Families can sign up for one of the 60-minute sessions at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., or noon. Registration is required and each session is limited to 50 guests.
