The day's theme is "Scavenged! A Day of Environmental Creation," featuring activities tying into themes from the museum's current exhibition.

A Scavenger Hunt For Families will meet in the learning center at noon.

The hunt takes participants through the museum campus to collect natural and recycled materials for Design Challenges, an artists workshop for all ages in the Richter Gallery from 1 to 4 p.m.

Artist Donna Sharrett will lead the workshop combining remnants of a Norway Spruce and a basic lace stitch. Participants will create two tree mementos – one to take home and one to leave. 

Sharrett creates intricate assemblages sewn with a variety of traditional needlework techniques. Passed down from a family of craftswomen and fiber artists, Sharrett’s techniques instill in each piece cross-cultural references to life, death, and rebirth, addressing the shared human ability and desire to remember. 

The museum's SupraEnvironmental exhibit runs to Jan. 24.

The Katonah Museum of Art is at 134 Jay St. in Katonah.
