  • Recycled Art Extravaganza

    The Parrish Art Museum’s annual fall festival on Sunday will be a recycled art extravaganza. The fun begins at 10:30 a.m., when Steven and William Ladd, whose exhibition “Mary Queen of the Universe” is at the museum through January, work with families to make scrolls from bits of discarded fabric.

    Bash the Trash will lead visitors in making musical instruments from recycled materials, or attendees can make woven artworks inspired by “Alan Shields: In Motion,” another museum exhibition.
