FEE-FREE P.L.A.Y. DAY
As part of the Deering Estate's annual FEE-FREE P.L.A.Y. DAYS, guests can enjoy free admission to the Deering Estate at Cutler on SEPTEMBER 15, 2012. The Fee-Free “P.L.A.Y.” Days were created to honor the Deering Estate’s partner organizations and the community.
On Saturday, September 15th we will honor the Scouts, but the entire public can enjoy the following programs and activities – all for free!
• Historic House Tours at 10:30 am, 12:00 pm, 1:30 pm and 3:00 pm.
• “Book Nook by the Bay” Program from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in the Education Booth.
Activity: Plant Detective Game where participants will go on a hike to find clues about different native plants.
• Tableau Vivant/The Living Picture from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm.
Join Deering Estate Artist in Residence Christina Pettersson and guests for a special outdoor drawing event! Pettersson created this interactive art event as a way to link the Estate's past to the present. Costumed artist models will be carefully posed, as guests are invited to create onsite figure drawings and photographs. The approach marries traditional life drawing classes with the art forms of the stage and photography. Drawing supplies and easels will be provided, but guests are welcome to bring cameras, sketchpads, and other drawing materials.
• Food and beverages will be available for an additional fee.
Food for purchase will be provided by Crepemaker and the Deering Estate Foundation.
We invite our guests to "P.L.A.Y." - Preservation, Learning, Adventure, Year-Round - and enjoy the many tours, educational programs, and special events that the Estate has to offer. The FEE-FREE P.L.A.Y. DAYS were created to honor the Deering Estate's partner organizations and the community:
