Show Us Your Butter Art

Butter art

We’re missing the State Fair, and we bet you are, too. Why not create a little of that Fair festivity by trying your hand at creating a butter sculpture inspired by art from Columbus Museum of Art? Here’s Elizabeth’s creation, inspired by Barbara Hepworth’s “Family of Man” in our sculpture garden.

Visit the galleries for inspiration, then create your butter masterpiece at home and share your #buttercreativity with #myCMAatHome on social media. We’ll share our favorite butter re-creations. Who knows, this might become a new family summer tradition!

Check out this video for tips on making a butter sculpture.
