This fall, the Museum is all about family. Our downstairs galleries feature exhibitions that consider an expanded view of what a “family” can be. For this Family Day, we will use these exhibitions as inspiration to create our own original mixed media “family portraits.” Make your own or work together with others to create a group portrait. Children of all ages are welcome. This event is free; all materials provided.
