Art Alive for Families

Sun, Jul 18, 2021

Join us for Art Alive, a drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience for kids and their families that takes place every Sunday.

Artist educators on the floor facilitate lively discussions of works in the exhibition and lead gallery-friendly, art-making activities. Discussions and activities are ongoing, so families can join any time between 11 am and 1 pm and stay as long as they like. The program is offered in accordance with the Museum’s safe social-distancing practices.

This Sunday, find us on Floor 2 where 2020 Artist Studios resident Kazue Taguchi will be on the floor of 45 Stories in Jewelry: 1947 to Now facilitating discussions and leading art-making inspired by British designers Wendy Ramshaw and David Watkins' "Something Special" paper jewelry series created in the 1960s.
