Friday Photos: Summer Programs

Summer is finally here! And there is no better way to spend that free time than to visit the DMA and take advantage of our engaging summer programs. Throughout June and July, visitors can explore works of art in the Museum’s galleries through sketching, family tours, story times, interactive games and more! There is no need to pre-register for these activities–just show up and enjoy them for free!

And if you participate in our free DMA Friends program, you can earn the new Summer Family Fun Badge when you attend one tour, one story time, one sketching in the galleries, and one family game. We’ll see you soon for some summer family fun!

Friday Photos: Spring Break

Many families have enjoyed spending their Spring Break staycation at the Museum! We’ve had several activities this week including puzzles, interactive tours, and a family film, Dropping in on Picasso.

Families participated with our interactive Story Time, led by Museum Education staff who read books in front of related artworks and engaged children in a gallery activity. Kids (and a few adults) donned capes and crowns and pretended to fly across the sky in our photo shoot inspired by the exhibition, Chagall: Beyond Color. Adults and kids competed against each other in a battle of wits and creativity during our ART You SmARTer Than Your Grown-Up? game. Indeed, kids were smarter than their grown-ups!

Our week of fun culminates tonight during Late Night. Our theme this month is the Wizard of Oz, so the evening will be full of family friendly activities you won’t want to miss. And DMA Friends who drop by donning their favorite pair of ruby slippers will find a surprise waiting for them over the rainbow!

Seldom Scene: Noon Year’s Eve

We celebrate the arrival of 2011 a bit earlier than most during the second annual Noon Year’s Eve with Radio Disney and over 4,200 visitors joined us. Families enjoyed a morning filled with games, give-aways, art, and a countdown to the new year at 12:00 p.m. We had to share some of our favorite moments from that day with you on Uncrated, enjoy!
