Weekend at the Museum: Out of Sight Dyn-o-mite!
June 22-23, 2013

Get ready for a magical weekend of action and activities at Glenbow. Drawing on Escher's illusory example, Glenbow presents Out of Sight Dyn-O-mite!, featuring magician Malcom Russell's sleight of hand magic, which includes both new and classic tricks and feats of mental dexterity. Just as M.C. Escher is famed for creating mindbending "impossible landscapes," magician Russell promises to make the "impossible ... suddenly, delightfully possible."

All weekend there will be plenty of '70s-inspired arts and crafts activities for all ages. Get a blast from the past by decorating your own Pet Rock or creating a Velveteen painting. Whether you're a parent or a kid, we're sure you'll create something that's both out-of-sight and dyn-o-mite!

All activities, workshops and supplies are included with admission or membership.
