Calendar / Family Sunday
Sunday January 21, 2018 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!
Join Mingei this January to create your own sea creature vessel inspired by Art of the Americas on exhibition. Many of the vessels created were for ritual use and often depicted marine life along with gods, shamans, animals, and floral motifs. Marine life was an important food source in ancient Central and South America.
Family Gallery Spotlight: Look, listen and share ideas with a Museum Educator during a 15 minute gallery spotlight specifically geared toward children and families. Offered at 1:30pm & 3:30pm.
At 2:30 pm, enjoy the sounds of Camarada and meet Scott Paulsen on harp, theremin and other “gestural” instruments as he takes you on a musical journey and shares all about his craft.
We invite and encourage families to enjoy the Museum together, to talk, laugh and move around freely. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Running and other physical activity which might harm kids or artwork is not permitted.
