Kid stuff: Make a Mask at UMFA and Maybe Learn Something.

Let’s face it, the average grade-schooler has a Ph.D in pop-culture Halloween. Between It and a dozen local spook houses, there’s no scare there anymore. Halloween shock has reached the tipping point and is beginning the slide into boring.

Now’s your chance as a parent to sneak a little culture, geography and anthropology into the the holiday. Third Saturdays at the UMFA offers family activities every third Saturday of the month. For October it’s mask making. You and the kids will create your own masks inspired by the incredible masks from Africa and the Pacific in the UMFA permanent collection.

Not only is the class free but museum admission and parking is also gratis. More info here or or call 801-581-3580. 

Saturday, 1–4 p.m. UMFA, 410 Campus Center Dr.

The late, great Glen Warchol passed away in 2018. His last billet was on the editorial staff here at Salt Lake magazine but his storied career included stops at The Salt Lake Tribune, The Desert News, The New Times and others. His stories haunt this website like ghosts in a machine and we're always happy to see them. RIP Papa Warchol.
