Community Art Day
May 4, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Visit the Chisholm Trail Museum for the first Community Art Day on Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to noon. Curators from the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art will provide hands-on art fun by bringing a little bit of their museum to Kingfisher. Participants will create a metal cartouche (an ancient Egyptian nameplate) and learn how to write their names in Egyptian hieroglyphics. The Mabee-Gerrer staff also will bring Egyptian artifacts for visitors to touch. All materials will be provided, and the activity is free while supplies last.
Founded in 1919, the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is one of the oldest museums in the state of Oklahoma. Father Gregory Gerrer, for whom the museum is named, was a Benedictine monk of considerable artistic talent. During Father Gerrer’s travels to Europe, Africa, and South America, he collected objects of artistic and ethnological value.
