Community Day

Sunday, July 3, 2016 - 11:00am - 6:00pm

The Noguchi Museum celebrates its neighbors by offering this annual series of Community Days, with free admission all day, and special programming and activities.

 

11 am–2 pm: Open Studio

A drop-in program for families with children between the ages of 2–11. Advance registration is not required. Includes educator-led activities in the galleries and hands-on art making workshops. In this Open Studio session, we will learn about the role of kakemono (Japanese scrolls) in Tom Sachs: Tea Ceremony, and explore how artist Tom Sachs took inspiration from figures like Muhammad Ali and Sarak from Star Trek. Afterwards, families will consider who inspires them while creating their own kakemono in the studio. Read more about our family programs here.
