Investigate “Ghosts in the Machine”—the New Museum’s latest exhibition that explores the relationship between humans, art, and machines—during New Museum First Saturdays for Families. Focus on the artwork of Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely who use repeated shapes, lines, and minimal colors to create detailed paintings that generate the illusion of depth and movement on a flat surface. Discover how to create your own optical artwork using simple shapes and patterns with New Museum educators in the Sky Room.

New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children aged between four and fifteen years and includes free New Museum admission for up to two adults per family. Children under eighteen are always admitted free. No preregistration is required. Space is limited and tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Your entire party must be present; tickets will not be given to partial parties.
