Calendar / Family Sunday

Sunday September 17, 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!

Creating art at Mingei is no prob-llama! To celebrate Mingei’s new ART OF THE AMERICAS exhibition, join us this September to create your own llama or alpaca figurine! The llama and alpaca are ancient symbols for many South American regions. Many pre-Columbian civilizations of Peru, such as the Moche and Chimú cultures, utilized llamas and alpacas in many ways, including for wool and transportation.

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.

Enjoy complimentary admission in celebration of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA’s launch weekend, thanks to Bank of America!



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.
