Bop your head and move your feet to the rhythm of our monthly FREE fun filled day of art and storytelling. Mueve la cabeza y los pies en nuestro o domingo GRATIS, un día al mes lleno de arte y cuentos.
Best-selling children’s author (A is for Activist and others) and activist Innosanto Nagara will share with us his new picture book, ‘The Wedding Portrait,’ a brilliant and inspiring book about crucial ideas regarding civil disobedience and direct action that will speak to young readers’ sense of right and wrong. The Wedding Portrait is an essential book for kids featuring stories of direct action from around the world that are book ended by the author’s wedding story. In brilliantly bright and inspiring illustrations we see ordinary people say No–to unfair treatment, to war, to destroying the environment. There has never been a more important moment for Innosanto Nagara’s gentle message of firm resolve.
In collaboration with Word Up Community Bookshop. FREE WITH MUSEUM ADMISSION.

In light of our current political climate, and with the desire to honor ALL people, the museum continues to probe the question: “What does it mean to be a global citizen?” Partnering with artist Dianne Smith and Material for the Arts (MFTA), we invite museum families to participate in the co-creation of a sculptural woven wall. In the spirit of citizenship, bring your old t-shirts, rope, string and notions to contribute to the collective work of art that will become a new interactive element in our Studio Labs.
