About this event

Explore hands-on activities inspired by Chicago artists and MCA exhibitions. Subscribe to our Family Newsletter to receive a special set of at-home activity prompts via email. New at-home activity guides for families are added to our Learning Resources page monthly.

The MCA has reopened to the public and we're excited to invite families back for safe, socially-distanced gallery time. Kids and grown-ups can enjoy self-guided prompts for looking at art. No hands-on making activities are offered. Prepare for your visit by reading our full safety guidelines and by checking out our social story. Reserve a complimentary time slot at the museum with your family on Family Day.
