Join Billy Kheel, Aimée Lubin, and Stanley VonMedvey for a family friendly afternoon of crafts! Come and create your own applique spacecraft with the curators of The Space Show, Billy Kheel and Aimée Lubin, then animate its journey across a giant space felt board.
Also, Stanley VonMedvey of Stan Draws Spaceships will be guiding kids through drawing simple spaceships while explaining their parts and functions. We'll have festive treats, Eat Your Feelings Ice Cream and Hard Frescos too. This event is fun for space cadets and their families!

Using felt and thread, Billy Kheel creates soft sculptures, wall hangings, portraits and installations. His approach challenges traditional gender roles and concepts about masculinity. His use of material questions the boundary between art and craft. Regardless of the subject of a given series, a sense of humor and warmth runs throughout his work.
