Art Center workshop to focus on Muscatine’s very own Laura Musser

Children 7-14 are invited to the Muscatine Art Center this Saturday, November 12, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. to celebrate Laura Musser’s birthday with an old-fashioned tea party and will continue the nineteenth-century theme by creating a vintage optical toy called a thaumatrope.

The Musser-McColm Mansion at the Muscatine Art Center was built in 1908 and is named after Laura Musser McColm, the woman who called 1314 Mulberry Avenue “home”. After Laura passed away in 1964, her home was donated for use as a museum. Today, the Muscatine Art Center hosts changing exhibits, programs, and classes for people of all ages.

Register for the event no later than November 11 by calling 563-263-8282. The Muscatine Art Center is located at 1314 Mulberry Avenue.
