Hands ON! Second Saturdays
The Hands ON! on Second Saturdays program offers monthly free admission, hands-on art activities, storytelling, a docent-guided tour, live performances, and community collaborations. “Art Investigators” provides children the opportunity to engage with Museum staff and take a closer look at selected artworks while engaging in a dialogue about the selected pieces. Themes and programs change monthly and rotate through cultural explorations, exhibition connections and community partnerships. Join us in October as we celebrate Día de los Muertos.
