Calendar / Family Sunday

Sunday October 15, 2017 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Don’t miss our monthly event just for families. Explore the Museum’s colorful exhibitions with an interactive treasure map, roll up your sleeves for a hands-on art project, learn more with a docent tour, take home prizes and have fun!

Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead is one of the annual festivities celebrated in Mexico when families and friends get together to remember and honor loved ones. Join guest artist Elexia de la Parra, founder and owner of Artelexia, this October for a celebration honoring Day of the Dead festivities by creating your own sugar skull piñata!
