Join CAG and ArtStarts for a very special Family Day event celebrating the public art initiative How far do you travel? and the work of Anna Torma. Families will be invited to enjoy creative activities across three sites: CAG, ArtStarts and aboard the How far do you travel? bus graphically wrapped in Torma’s work. Inspired by Torma’s practice, activities will include embroidery, storytelling and more.
