Note: All workshops are at capacity and registration is now closed.

Recommended for ages 3-6.

Families with young children are invited to visit The Plastic Bag Store and participate in a guided, hands-on art-making activity.

Children ages 3-6 and their families can explore the store in a relaxed, child-friendly environment. Discover shelves stocked with thousands of original grocery items meticulously sculpted by hand, all made from discarded single-use plastics harvested from streets and garbage dumps. Then join in the fun by crafting your own art objects made from upcycled/found objects (provided) in a guided, hands-on activity conceived of and led by Ann Arbor artist Sajeev Visweswaran.

The Plastic Bag Store is co-presented by the University Musical Society, the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and the U-M Graham Sustainability Institute, with support from the U-M Arts Initiative.
