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.
