The Fabric of Our Lives

What do your PajamaJeans and Ed Hardy hoodie say about you? Do they convey your personal history? Are they visual representations of your cultural struggles and identity? Are you, like, plaid? Find out at Family Day at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art (4420 Warwick Boulevard, 816-753-5784) with Pattern ID, an exhibition that focuses on the concept of self-identification through pattern and dress. Kids get the chance to create their own “batik” print and hear the sounds of New World Music Gumbo, a musical stew of Brazilian, Argentinian and Cuban rhythms. Admission and parking are free. The event runs from noon to 3 p.m. See kemperart.org/calendar for more information.
