ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Bring the whole family to the Skirball’s Last Weekends of the Month. These fun-filled Saturdays and Sundays feature special last-weekend-only performances and activities that change every month. Take part in related art activities in the Family Art Studio, too.
JULY 26—"LEMONADE STAND" WITH FALLEN FRUIT
Drop by anytime 11:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.
Meet artists David Burns and Austin Young of the Los Angeles–based art collaborative Fallen Fruit as they engage visitors at a “Lemonade Stand.” This popular ongoing project offers each visitor a cold glass of lemonade in exchange for a self-portrait—a drawing of yourself on a lemon!—and a personal story of happiness, sadness, or self-reflection. During your visit, check out the artists’ specially designed, fruit-inspired art wallpaper, on display in Fallen Fruit of the Skirball.
Drop by anytime 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
In conjunction with The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats, draw inspiration from Keats’s use of shadows in many of his children’s books. Join artist and educator Brenda Cruz to create a community shadow collage using chalk and other drawing materials.
