In this drop-in program that will run as part of the Diwali Family Festival (a day of programs and activities celebrating India’s fall festival of lights), families will take a tour of sculptures throughout the museum, focusing on our collection of Hindu art. Tour texts will discuss the differences and similarities in the sculptures from different cultures and epochs. In addition, families will create pencil drawings of sculptures, to help them see the physical gestures and poses of the sculptures. Returning from their tour, children will be asked to imitate their favorite sculpture. This imitation will be captured with a 3D scan allowing for a 3D print of the child as the museum sculpture. This program is designed to guide visitors to consider collections in a playful manner and place themselves into the museum through the personalized creation of their own 3D sculpture.
