On Saturday, January 21, 2023, 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., the Presbytère will close to the public to minimize crowds and exhibit noises. Trained educators and volunteers will help lead drop-in art activities and exploration of the exhibition Rex: The 150th Anniversary of the School of Design. Participants will meet float designers, create their own float flowers, hear carnival music from a brass band, and learn more about the instruments they use.
