Family Day is a monthly program for kids and their grownups. Enjoy free admission while taking part in workshops, open studio sessions, gallery tours, and performances, all designed and led by Chicago artists. This month, make new friends at the museum. Treasure your neighborhood with Edra Soto, reinvent the playground through sound with Sadie Woods, and step into the shoes of famous artists with Aram Han Sifuentes.

Family Days are the second Saturday of every month through the spring, from 11 am–3 pm. This season, join us Nov 11, Dec 9, Jan 13, Feb 10, Mar 10, Apr 14, and May 12.
