Virtual Family Day: Making Home

July 12 @ 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM CDT

Free

On the second Sunday of the month, Mia hosts a free monthly event for families, kids, and the young at heart featuring hands-on art activities, live music, dance performances, artist demonstrations, family tours and more — all inspired by Mia’s incredible collection. Although the museum’s doors are closed for the safety of our community, you can still gather digitally!

Join the Minneapolis Institute of Arts for a virtual Family Day! Inspired by the special exhibit “When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Art and Migration” (http://bit.ly/2OpBBUN), this month they’re asking: What is a home? And how do you make one? Learn more about the local artist collective Carryon Homes and their installation in the special exhibit, listen to melodies from Latin America from the local choir BorderCrosSing, and be inspired to create art that tells your story of home!

Check back on July 12 for the full content, videos, and art-making tutorials: https://bit.ly/2AKdf41
