Last Sunday Family Programs held our first Family Sundays drop-in program and I will modestly say it was a huge success. We had over 50 people in attendance throughout the afternoon and everyone looked to be having a great time.
In the Education Center we held our art-making activity, connecting concepts from the Museum’s newest exhibition, Bodies in Balance, with an “Anatomy Collage” activity. Families traced one another’s bodies and then chose from a variety of recycled papers to collage into their “bodies.” The results were pretty awesome. A few children noted that it was the largest artwork they had ever created.
Over in the Museum our guide, Olivia, led a lively Family Tour (now happening every Sunday at 2pm!) of Bodies in Balance, introducing families to the Medicine Buddha, zombies with third eyes, and Tibetan body diagrams.
In honor of the launch of our new program we also had two musicians from Dance Theater of Nepal performing in our Spiral Lobby. Families were able to sit and enjoy the music with one other during their visit.
Thanks to all who attended and helped to make our first Family Sundays such a fun success. Please visit the Family Sundays web page for more information about upcoming Family Sundays.
See you next Sunday!
