Family Programs


Second Sunday is a free, family-focused day of art talks, hands-on art making, and gallery adventures for visitors of all ages. Registration is not required, and families can tailor their museum experience based on their schedule and the activities that interest them the most.

Each Second Sunday will explore a new exhibition or theme. The exhibition or theme can be found in each event listing at

Please request a Second Sunday schedule at the information desks in the Atrium and Diekman Gallery on the First Floor. Schedules are available on Second Sundays only.

Sunday Spotlight: 15 minute gallery talk for all ages. Talks start at 11:30am and continue throughout the day on the half hour through 3pm.

All visitors, regardless of age, ability, or familiarity with the creative process, are encouraged to participate. From 11 am to 4 pm, registration is not required and visitors can work at their own pace.
Art Packs: Check out an Art Pack that includes themed activities for visitors of all ages and materials for sketching while visiting the galleries.
