With spring weather here, head over to the Whitney Museum of American Art this weekend. Saturday and Sunday's open studio with artist Matthew Cerletty explores everyday objects that may seem ordinary to a stranger, but are important to a family or individual. Families will be invited by the artist to create artworks based on their own special object.  Cerletty's landscapes and still lives combine traditional techniques with playful and unexpected subject matter. His work is currently on display in the Flatlands exhibit through April 17, 2016.

Open Studio: Matthew Cerletty. For kids of all ages. April 2-3, 2016. 10:30am-3pm. Free with museum admission. The Whitney Museum of American Art is located at 99 Ganesvoort Street in New York City.
