Family Day: Mom’s the Word
Saturday, May 9, 2015
12:30-3:30 p.m.
Free with Museum admission
All ages welcome
The New Britain Museum of American Art cordially invites you to join us for a day of Mother’s Day activities. For the youngest visitors, start the day off with our Art Start and Art Explorers programs as they make Mother’s Day themed projects. Take part in our first annual teddy bear tea party! Come dressed for the occasion and bring your best stuffed animal friend for light refreshments and a tasty selection of treats. Create a colorful and festive placemat to use for your place setting and take it home as a souvenir of the day. Karl Lund, whose exhibit Angry Robots Liquefied My Brain runs through May 31, will be in the Art Studio from 1 to 3:30 p.m. to lead a sci-fi scribblefest! Don’t forget to stop by the ArtLab to make a bangle or cuff bracelet for mom inspired by The Enchanting Jewels of Elizabeth Gage. Spend the day with us as we honor mothers and celebrate all she gives to her family. You will be sure to leave with a smile and a beautiful memory.
