Shared art experiences. New every time.

The MCA celebrates Earth Day! MCA families are invited to explore sustainable ways of living, create hands-on projects, make pledges, and more.


Creation Station: Take It or Leave It
Inspired by Felix Gonzalez-Torres's Untitled (The End), take from a communal block of clay to sculpt your own creation with artist Katie Waugh.

Creation Station: Seeing Sound
Explore sound art with artist Alex Chitty—create patterns and colors inspired by the sounds of our local environment.

Creation Station: Walk on Me
With artist Tanya Fleisher, contribute an environmental pledge to a collaborative floor installation inspired by Dan Peterman's Ground Cover.

Look & Learn
Explore the exhibition Seeing Is a Kind of Thinking, and talk about the artwork and your ideas with artist Annie Heckman.

Back by popular demand: Stroller Valet
Move freely through the museum by checking your stroller at our complimentary stroller valet.
