Family Day: (Extra)ordinary

Free (for families)


Play with the familiar and the fantastic at this Family Day, inspired by Pop Art Design, The Street, the Store, and the Silver Screen, and Surrealism: The Conjured Life. Featuring special guest artists from FrankenToyMobile.

FrankenToyMobile is an artist-driven, pedal-powered maker space that encourages imagination and curiosity by inviting people to reuse toys as raw material for original creations.
