It’s A Culture Trifecta for Your Family This Weekend: Late Nights at The Museum, ‘Til Midnight at the Nasher, and Art Uprising
(Roy Lichtenstein at the Nasher Sculpture Center)
I’m not gonna lie, I miss last weekend’s cool, overcast weather. I’m over the 90 degree temps. Bring on fall. But sadly it looks like I’m going to have to give in and ponder some pool time for the kiddos. I’m also pondering lots (and lots) of art goodness.
Here’s what’s going down.
- Tinker Tots 6–7:30 p.m.
Create an “All About Me” collage in this activity just for children ages 2-4.
- Late Night Creations 6–9 p.m.
Make a Museum of Me poster or map of your dream museum using a variety of materials in the studio.
- Yoga for Kids 7–7:30 p.m.
BKS Studio Instructor Michelle Mock leads kiddos in meditation, relaxation, and some pretzel-like poses.
- Bedtime Stories with Arturo 7:30 p.m.
Wear your pajamas and bring your pillows to hear bedtime stories told by storyteller Ann Marie Newman.
You can also walk across the street for ’til Midnight at the Nasher to take in a free concert by Telegraph Canyon starting at 7 p.m. The Nasher will have salads, sandwiches, and beverages available for purchase (no outside food allowed) and complimentary drinks in the member’s lounge for museum members.
While you’re there taking in the tunes, the kiddos can ogle Roy Lichtenstein’s Head with Blue Shadow among other masterworks currently on display as part of the Mode of Making in Modern Sculpture exhibit. Let the littles get inspired and then whip up their own works of art when you get home…
On Sunday, you can continue getting your culture fill at the West Village’s first annual Art Uprising Festival family day. The event features local artists and artisans, food, drinks, children’s activities, and entertainment by Cirque du Soleil street performers.
Happy weekend friends!
