Family Programs

Family Days

Family Days take place five times a year and revolve around designated exhibitions and themes. These events are typically for ages 5 to 11 but all are welcome. A Family Day begins with a family-friendly tour of art in our galleries and then proceeds to our classroom space for an art activity relating to the tour. 

Saturday, September 23, 1 – 4 pm | Sun Prints 
Families with children of all ages can tour Poetic and Political, exploring how clothes and textiles shape individual and community identities. After the tour, make sun prints (camera-less photographs) inspired by the work of German-Ghanaian artist Zohra Opoku. 

Saturday,  November 4, 1 – 4 pm | Explore the exhibition Becoming a Woman in the Age of Enlightenment: French Art from the Horvitz Collection
