Community Kick-Off: The Art of Jacob Lawrence
Saturday, February 24, 11 am – 3 pm

Celebrate the opening of History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence with an afternoon full of art-making activities, tours, photo-ops, music, performances and free food! Visitors of all ages can explore the vibrant, colorful works by influential American artist Jacob Lawrence who recorded historical events of African-American life as well as vivid observations of dynamic city life in his native Harlem, New York City.


Family Days

Family Days take place five times a year and revolve around designated exhibitions and themes. These events are typically for ages 5 to 11 but all are welcome. A Family Day begins with a family-friendly tour of art in our galleries and then proceeds to our classroom space for an art activity relating to the tour.


Family Day: Art Adventures

Enjoy an alphabetical exploration of art from across the world in ABC: Art by the Letter. Together, make miniature books inspired by your tour. This program is ideal for families with children ages 5 – 11, but all ages are welcome.
