The Woodmere Art Museum presents its Fall 2012 straw maze “Diagon Alley.” Hours are Fridays, 6–8 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m.–6 p.m., and Sundays 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Families welcome; ages 4–11 with adult $8 per child ($6 members); $20 for families of three or more ($18 members).
The maze will be open until October 28. The theme for the 2012 maze draws inspiration from the Harry Potter series. Diagon Alley is a cobbled wizarding alley and shopping area located in London behind a pub called the Leaky Cauldron. Inside the alley is an assortment of shops where wands, charms, and all items on the Hogwarts supply list can be bought. Visitors will find everything a wizard needs to cast spells. 850 lb. bales have been arranged in concentric squares, nesting one inside the other.At the perimeter, bales are stacked to create post and lintel portals for access to magic markets. Beyond the portals is the “commitment wall” – a diaphanous honeycomb wall of straw bales intended to challenge the visitor. At the center of the maze resides a mystical red sphere. Seek-and-find activities will also be available to guide visitors through the maze.
Magical art-making activities will be held Fridays, 6-7 p.m., and Saturdays, 2-4 p.m. They are free and include: September 14–15, Wizard Hats; September 21–22, Magic Wands; September 28–29, Cloaks of Invisibility; October 5–6, Wizard Hats; October 12–13, Hogwarts Castle; October 19–20, Magic Book; October 26–28, Harry Potter Weekend, including Tri-Wizard Tournament, Magic Wands, and Treats from the Trolley.
