Fall Family Fun Day at the Elisabet Ney Museum

Nov 4, 2016 - 12:45 pm

Saturday, November 12, 2016 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm



Help us welcome two new art pieces to the grounds of the Ney in Fall family style!

Bring the kids to the Museum for the new Fall Family Fun Day, Saturday November 12th, when visitors will have the opportunity to officially welcome Humpty Dumpty to the Ney site! A temporary visitor, Humpty Dumpty was crafted by Austin artist Yuliya Lanina. The charming, bobbing, musically-inclined anthropomorphic egg makes for both a gender switch and a colorful addition to the museum's West entrance.

Visitors will also be able to greet a remarkable replica of Elisabet’s famed self-portrait, created with 3-D subtractive manufacturing techniques and rendered in materials that will sparkle at night, evoking Elisabet’s penchant for sleeping under the stars. Ney Remixed is also a temporary installation, created by Lisa Woods and Rodolfo Magnus.

Both pieces are part of the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division's Art in Public Places TEMPO program, and this is their official opening! There will be refreshments and sculpting activities, storytelling, face painting, and much more. See you then!
