First Saturdays for Families: NEW Monuments

Some monuments are big, some old, some can inspire, and some commemorate while others celebrate. A monument can be anything from the Greek Parthenon to the Washington Monument to the Eiffel Tower and even a statue of Mickey Mouse. Join the New Museum in creating our own monuments and explore ideas of monumentality as seen in the New Museum Triennial “The Ungovernables,” paying special attention to Adrián Villar Rojas’s decomposing structures, Danh Võ’s reconstruction of the Statue of Liberty, and Julia Dault’s abstractions.

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.
