Join us on Saturday, November 19, at 2 pm, for Family Saturday: Mosaic Moon Mirrors! Participants are invited to design their own mosaic mirrors using wood, tile, and mirrors, inspired by Josiah McElheny's Seven Observations for June Tyson, featured in Parallax: Framing the Cosmos.

Family Saturday programs foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art-making activity. Programs run from 2-3:30 pm and include a tour of selected works. All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children age 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. No registration required; supplies provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
