Spring Break Wonders
March 11-14
Take advantage of family programming at the Modern over the course of the week while your school-aged children are on Spring Break. Each session is led by a docent and includes a gallery project designed by the education department. Both the tour and project focus on selected works in the Modern's collection and the special exhibition. Attendance is limited to 45 children per session; admission is free.
Two sessions each day; 11-11:45 am and 2-2:45 pm
Special Spring Break sketchbooks for kids are available for free at the admission desk.

Family Studio Workshop - KAWS Totems
March 15, 11 am-4 pm
Join for some creative family time on the Modern's lawn as we look across the reflecting pond to focus on the Museum's new acquisition, KAWS's monumental sculpture CLEAN SLATE, 2018. Learn about how KAWS and other artists have reclaimed toys and cartoon characters and given them new purpose and identities. Take this opportunity to start the spring with your own clean slate! Empty out your kids' closets and work together to recycle old stuffed animals into art. Stick around and take a selfie with the resulting collaborative sculpture built by all participating families.
This is a free drop-in program; the only requirement is that families bring stuffed animals to contribute to the collaborative project.
