Calendar / Family Sunday

Sunday April 15, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 4:00 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 April for a printmaking project inspired by VOLUMINOUS ART. Led by guest artist Amanda Lynn, participants will use various materials, such as string, foam and stamps to create unique collagraph and block prints on paper.

Guest Artist Bio: Amanda’s artwork combines imagery and practices of femininity that converge with her identity and history. Botanical elements are often woven into the themes of her work. She finds it beautiful to be fragile and strong at the same time. She sees this contrast of confrontation in people and frequently uses flora to illustrate that connection.

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.


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.

Family Sunday is made possible through a generous grant from the ResMed Foundation, and in partnership with the San Diego Zoo.
