Famed pop artist Peter Max, whose drawings are on view at the Nassau County Museum of Art, is holding an art contest and exhibition on Feb. 2 where he will create original line drawings in front of the audience, share his thoughts on art and judge art works by local children.
Max has created an original drawing that he’s asking children to color and make their own. This can be done at home, before February 2, by downloading the drawing from the museum’s website (nassaumuseum.com/events, scroll down to Peter Max Family Day). Or pick up the drawing on February 2 and color it in at the museum. Peter Max will then judge the entries. All children who enter the contest will receive a prize. All drawings will be included in a temporary exhibition at the museum.
No reservations are needed for Peter Max Family Day on Sunday, February 2, from 1 to 4 p.m. The fee is museum admission plus $8 per family materials fee. From 3 to 4 p.m., in the first floor café area, Peter Max will sign and dedicate books and posters purchased at the Museum Store. Please be sure to bring your receipt to the signing. The signing is free with museum admission.
Nassau County Museum of Art is located at One Museum Drive in Roslyn Harbor, just off Northern Boulevard, Route 25A, two traffic lights west of Glen Cove Road. Weekends only there is a $2 parking fee (members, free).
