Family Day: Active Art

Sat, May 11, 2013, 11  am–3 pm

Family Day

Experience Amalia Pica’s participatory pieces and spend the day creating installations that activate all parts of the MCA.

Studio: Spinning Station with Annie Heckman
Let a spinning top guide you across the museum: spin it, and follow it.

Studio: Color Space with Kristin Sabatino
Design the walls of a shared structure using colors of all sorts.

Pop-up Dance Experience: Hubbard Street Youth Ensemble
Watch dancers respond to artwork with improvisational movements and then participate yourself.

Tot Spot

Tot Spot is a great place to rest and recharge as a family. Enjoy a complementary healthy snack, build a structure, or read a book. Join us. All are welcome.

Find the Artist
Artist Alex Chitty is roaming throughout the galleries—find Alex and join her for a conversation or game.
