Art: Come Follow Me

With Halloween right around the corner, Casey Riordan Millard’s upcoming UnMuseum installation at the Contemporary Arts Center, Come Follow Me, is the perfect way to inspire creativity in your favor

With Halloween right around the corner, Casey Riordan Millard’s upcoming UnMuseum installation at the Contemporary Arts Center, Come Follow Me, is the perfect way to inspire creativity in your favorite ghouls and goblins. Millard — best known for her sculptural installations, drawings and paintings of recurring childlike protagonist, Shark Girl — has received recent commissions from both the CAC and the Cincinnati Art Museum and was one of only seven local artists chosen to receive the newly created $6,000 Cincinnati Arts Ambassador Fellowship grant from the city. To celebrate the opening of her multimedia commission in the CAC’s child-focused gallery/art-making space, the artist will be leading an art-making activity for families and children ages 5-10 as part of the museum’s regular Family Saturday programming. The installation (part of the FotoFocus biennale) will include stop motion animation and explores the concept of a bad day as seen through the eyes of Shark Girl. 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27. Free for members; cost of admission for non-members. Contemporary Arts Center, 44 E. Sixth St., Downtown. contemporaryartscenter.org.
