Hamilton's Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum is hosting a series of happy hour events to wrap up the summer.
The first happy hour is 5:30 p.m. Aug. 14 and features an upcycling workshop for kids, with drinks available for parents at a cash bar. Inspired by artist Chakaia Booker's use of "post-consumer" products in her sculptural works, this educational class (led by artist Roscoe Wilson) will teach kids to use plastic jugs and other recyclable materials to make art. Adults are welcome to make art, too. This event is free and two of Booker's large-scale works are available to view on the grounds.
“Educational programming is a top priority for us at Pyramid Hill. We love to inspire the next generation of sculptors. This workshop is a great way for kids to explore their creativity while critically thinking about ecological concerns facing our planet,” says Sean FitzGibbons, executive director of Pyramid Hill, in a release. “This is also a fantastic opportunity for parents join in and work alongside their kids or sit back with family and friends with a drink and unwind after the workday.”
The next happy hour is a Yappy Hour held 4-7 p.m. Aug. 24. This event costs $8 for adults and $3 for children ages 5 to 12. Bring your dog for an evening on the grounds, with guests Animal Friends Humane Society and Pet Wants.
