Second Saturday Family Arts Day

Join The Humboldt Arts Council and Sean’s Shadow Puppet Theater for Second Saturday Family Arts Day, Saturday, May 11 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Morris Graves Museum of Art.

Sean Powers has been working in Humboldt County as a story-teller, illustrator and musician for twenty years and has been performing shadow puppets since 1996.  In addition to Shadow Puppets, Sean hand-builds his own paper and wooden puppets and has won awards for his wood carvings. Sean has performed at over 60 different schools, libraries and theatres throughout northern California. He has created ten different shadow plays based on stories from around the world.  Currently he is working on shadow puppet films and will be completing his third short shadow puppet film, which will eventually be translated into Spanish, Mandarin, and many other languages as a learning tool.


Following a presentation of Sean’s Shadow Puppet Theater, Family Arts Day participants have the opportunity to tour the current Northwest Eye Regional Photography Competition and Exhibition. Participants then engage in art projects which creatively integrate the use of light and shadow!


Activities begin at 2 p.m. with a $5 suggested donation at the door. The Morris Graves Museum of Art is located at 636 F Street, Eureka.  The Humboldt Arts Council thanks The California Arts Council –State Local Partner, US Bank, Schmidbauer Lumber, Living Education & Arts Foundation, AT&T, the McLean Foundation and the Sidney Stern Memorial Trust for their support.
