Last years Home for the Holidays play date at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art (4420 Warwick, 816-753-5784) saw kids getting crafty with aluminum foil an appropriate medium, given the seasons penchant for sparkle and shine, but one ultimately inspired by host Miles Neidinger, a Charlotte Street Award-winning artist who transforms mundane materials (coat hangers, coffee stirrers) into cunning installations.
For this years family-friendly event, which takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. today, the museums current exhibitions Remembering the Future and Lisa Sanditz: Flyover serve as muses. With the formers focus on time and memory and the latters colorful exploration of the Midwest, collages and scrapbooks act as fitting vehicles of expression. Kansas City musician Jeffrey Ruckman plays the dulcimer in the atrium, and gallery guides are available; children must be accompanied by an adult. See www.kem perart.org for information.
