The Walker Art Center hosts kid-friendly fun the first Saturday of every month. This weekend is no different, with plenty of special activities planned. This installment will feature local authors and explorations in the color wheel. Illustrator and author Tamara Shopsin will be teaming up with photographer Jason Fulford to talk about what different colors mean to them. The two have released quite a few children’s books, including This Equals ThatFind ColorsThese Colors Are Bananas, and A Pile of Leaves. Award-winning poet Bao Phi will read from A Different Pond, his picture book following a father and son as they fish in Minneapolis. Craft projects, short film screenings, and other creative fun will be available for free this afternoon, too.
