Family Day: Friends and Strangers


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, make a collaborative music box with Sadie Woods, find your perfect match with Joshua Rodriguez, and much more.

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.


Connect through sound and learn how to make music for a music box with Sadie Woods.

Celebrate who you are and where you’re from while making sculptures with Edra Soto.

Collaborate with Claire Arctander and other visitors on a collective weaving.

Find your perfect match in Joshua Rodriguez’s game Lock and Key.
