Calendar / Family Sunday

Sunday February 18, 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 February to create your own Mexican tin art inspired by ART OF THE AMERICAS, on the last day of the exhibition. Led by Guest Artist, Natalie Godinez, participants will work with aluminum sheets, shiny acrylic paint, sequins and the images of the Lotería to create their own colorful tin art.

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 2:00pm, celebrate Black History Month and enjoy an afternoon with the award-winning Black Storytellers of San Diego, Inc. (BSSD). In conjunction with the exhibition ART OF THE AMERICAS, the Black Storytellers of San Diego will bring alive the many images and themes of the Lotería.


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.
