The experience may be enhanced by related music and/or art-making to provide multi-sensory access to the visual arts.

We all have one – that fancy platter we use for family festivities or the glasses we just have to use in order to toast in the New Year. Join us this month as we explore how objects in the Museum’s collection were used around the world in various celebrations!

Space is limited; reservations are required. Please RSVP by Wednesday, June 7.
