Community Family Day Exploring Art at the Eustis Estate
Saturday, October 2 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Eustis Estate, 1424 Canton Avenue, Milton, MA 02186
Come to the Eustis Estate for a special day for families to explore the grounds and the outdoor sculpture exhibition, Looking Back with 2020 Vision, representing artist reactions to many of the issues that were on our minds in 2020: a global pandemic, calls for action around racial and social justice on an incredible scale, and environmental concerns. Art is a powerful way to process and heal. The day’s activities help families engage with the content and creatively express themselves.• Create social justice-based art led by local artists
- Follow a Story Walk through the property
- Practice mindfulness with family yoga and meditation
- Engage with the landscape through nature-based activities
