About

Free for families with children ages 12 and under.

For one time only, Target Family Day is on a SUNDAY. Join us for a day of experimentation as we investigate the work and world of Buckminster Fuller. Explore the intersection of geometry and art as you create new play spaces, use your favorite shapes to design domes, and mix and match words to create mottos for the future.

Activities
