Katherine Trubek Sundays on the Terrace

Trubek Logo

Families can share the joy of making art together in this fun series where we create art outdoors on our beautiful terrace. Join us for a short while or spend the afternoon participating in a fabulous community art project.  This series honors Katherine Bell Trubek (1904-1991), one of the artist founders of the Hunterdon Art Museum.

11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. 

Sunday, October 4: Canned Good Sculpture.

Create a giant sculpture with food cans. 

We are creating art and helping the community! Help us collect canned food items to be used to create our Canned Good Sculpture. After the sculpture is created and the event is over we will be donating all of the donated canned food items to local food banks, just in time for the holidays. We are collecting canned food items now through Sunday October 4th. Donations can be brought to the Hunterdon Art Museum, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday – Friday or 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday & Sunday.

We hope you enjoyed our last two Katherine Trubek Sundays on the Terrace Series events:

May 31: Hot fun in the summertime! We turned pool noodles into water wheels, and connected a gearbox with cogs and gears that turned a beach umbrella. When the pool noodle wheel is spun vertically, it causes the umbrellas to spin horizontally. The umbrellas represent the grinding stones of the mill, and will decorated them with images of Clinton and historical images of the Museum.

June 14: Flag Day celebration! We re-create flags from 51 different countries.  The 51 flags represent the original members of the United Nations. We made flags using nylon fabric, fabric paints and markers, and then hung them from a clothes line strung between the light poles on our terrace.

Sept 13: Dino Day! We built a really big dinosaur on our terrace! We painted the dinosaur bones in various art styles such as impressionism, expressionism and abstraction, then assembled them to create a dinosaur that stood about 6 feet tall.
