Program Description

Chicago artists transform the museum for kids and their grown-ups. Escape the holiday madness and slow down with meditations, soft art, music by Angela James, and more.

Family Days are free monthly programs for kids and their grown-ups. Enjoy free admission while taking part in workshops, open-studio sessions, gallery tours, and performances, all designed and led by Chicago artists. Family Days are organized by Grace Needlman, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, and Ellen Chu, Coordinator of Family, Youth, School, and Teacher Programs.
