Contemporary Arts Museum Houston says
Be inspired by the exhibitions "Whispering Bayou" and "Texas Design Now" at this month’s Family Day, featuring hands-on activities led by artists and designers and a performance by renowned conjunto musician Eva Ybarra.

From 12-4PM, join Brooklyn-based artist Travis Boyer for a hands-on workshop titled “Denim, Please Elaborate.” Embellished denim could be considered a diverse craft that spans a variety of distinct and overlapping cultural heritages. The embroidered and patched denim of miners, African American quilters, rhinestone cowboys, crusty studded punks, are celebrated at this Family Day. The workshop will include dry processes such as bedazzling, embroidery, studs, and appliqué, and wet processes such as indigo, puff paint, and dye markers. Bring a pair of jeans, a jacket, or some fabric and anything else you can possibly think of!

The Community Cloth will also be on-site demonstrating their unique process used to create the incredible soft and colorful textiles as seen in their work featured in Texas Design Now. And, don’t miss “The Queen of the Accordion” Eva Ybarra, who will perform in the museum galleries, showing off the conjunto sound that has made her a legend among musicians worldwide. Ybarra's performance is held in conjunction with the two-part music series "Voices of the Bayou," organized at CAMH, funded in part by the City of Houston; City's Initiative Programs through Houston Arts Alliance.

Boombox Tacos will be on-site serving their incredibly delicious tacos at Family Day; Be sure to come hungry!

Admission is free and open to the public.
