MAG's Sunday Fundays offer art for $1

Thanks to a grant from the Marie C. and Joseph C. Wilson Foundation, Sundays are now fun days at the Memorial Art Gallery (MAG).

Through May 1999, the foundation will make possible reduced general admission to a series of family days. Visitors can participate in a variety of activities, such as musical performances, storytelling, lectures, hands-on art, and museum tours.

"We want to give adults and children the opportunity to learn more about the art and cultures of the world, and to strengthen their bonds as families," said Delores Jackson Radney, MAG's coordinator of family programs and community outreach.

Admission for non-members is $1 (gallery admission included), with children five and under admitted free.

The first Sunday Funday, "Umoja Means Unity," was held February 15. Participants listened to the Trinidad and Tobago Steel Band, made self-portrait masks, watched weaving and spinning demonstrations, listened to stories and a piano concert, and toured the gallery.

Upcoming Fundays:

March 29: Around the World at the MAG

July 26: Celebration at the MAG

October 18: Learning to Look at Art

December 13: Celebrations of the Season

December 27: Kwanzaa Celebration

January 2, 1999: Three Kings Celebration

March 7, 1999: An American Folk Festival
