Although the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art is closed due to COVID-19, its virtual doors are wide open with education and exhibition programming continuing online. To help combat the social distancing blues and offer parents some creative ideas for art-making while home-schooling, the museum’s education staff has designed Art Everyday activities that can be made at home with everyday objects and art supplies. Short and simple instructions can be found on the museum’s social media and website. Additionally, the museum is continuing its Art Truck programming with 360 virtual tours, which can be viewed on the museum’s website.
