The 20-minute performance, which features the
students in Kim Miller's Collaboration & New Genre class at MIAD, will be repeated at 12 pm, 1:30 pm, and 3 pm.
Winter costumes designed for the performers by Katrina Matejcik to complement the bright grid.

10 AM-4 PM: JENNA KNAPP: INTRODUCING THE LABYRINTH SOCIETY OF LYNDEN SCULPTURE GARDEN
Artist Jenna Knapp launches her residency project, Labyrinth Society of Lynden Sculpture Garden, with images, sketches, and plans. Become a founding member of the LSLSG, sign up for a work day, attend a Society meeting, and--weather permitting--build an ephemeral labyrinth in the snow.

10 AM-4 PM: KIM KHAIRA AND HASINAH BEGUM: MEHNDI
The planning and practice of mehndi builds sisterhood/community and encourages self-expression. Kim Khaira begins her Lynden residency, Pulang Balik (“I Am Going Home Too”) by joining Rohingya refugee leader Hasinah Begum to showcase the art and appreciation of henna in the South/Southeast Asian community and beyond. Stop by their booth to learn more about henna and to have your hand decorated. Special thanks for the guidance of filmmaker (and Lynden board member) Laj Waghray.

10 AM-4 PM: MAKE A WINTER BUTTON
Design your own winter-themed image and make it into a button to celebrate the season.

10 AM-11:30 AM: NATURALIST TABLE
Examples of Lynden's Wildlife will be on display and a challenge to find evidence of their existence on our grounds. Super nature detectives win prizes. Snowflake catchers and hand lens also available if there is snow.

10 AM-12:30 PM: TRACKS IN THE SNOW
Can you recognize what animal it was that made those tracks outside in the snow? A print-making project will help you recognize Lynden's native creatures and use their tracks as inspiration.

11 AM-3 PM: OPEN KITCHEN: BREVE CAFE
On the first of two visits to Lynden, Open Kitchen, an experimental food studio and residency, will serve Bolillos de Mole (cacao-mole bun) and Wisconsin Wild Rice Horchata, with notes on fictional motives, motifs, and motion, by Maria Quintero and ADO. Open Kitchen (Rudy Medina and Alyx Christensen) is located in Riverwest. Maria Quintero is a self-taught artist located in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. When not working as a hairdresser, Maria sketches out of idleness and boredom. ADO is a collective author that focuses on semi-fictional research for the understanding of socio-cultural abstractions. ADO is the founder of ASAP (Association-Appropriation-Abbreviation), an alchemistic application for critically engaging issues of alienhood and livelihoods.

11:30 AM: TREE WALK
Current land manager Kyle Welna and former land manager Bob Retko lead a walk around the grounds showcasing the variety of trees at Lynden. Meet on the patio.

1 PM-4 PM: DIP CANDLE MAKING
Warm up in the art studio and make candles the old-fashioned way, by dipping a string in wax. This activity is designed as a drop-in and is open to all ages (young children may need parental assistance).

1:30 PM & 2:30 PM: NATURALIST OUTINGS
Meet on the patio to take a guided walk to the back acres of Lynden. We will investigate the habitats that are home to our non-human neighbors. Binoculars and hand lens will be offered to expand our vision.
