First Saturdays for Families: I Spy with My Little Eye…, 2015

Join New Museum educators for a special First Saturdays for Families, which will reimagine the cityscape around us. Families will explore a variety of questions focused on the city and city life. If streets could talk, for example, what stories would they share? With fellow participants, we will create a collaborative landscape inspired by the surroundings of the New Museum. Using an array of different materials, families will transform the skyline, design new sidewalk patterns, and build their own mini-museum.

New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children aged between four and twelve 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.


Generous support for New Museum First Saturdays for Families is provided by the Keith Haring Foundation School, Teen, and Family Programs Fund.

Additional support is provided by the Mimi Saltzman Foundation, the Bertha and Isaac Liberman Foundation, and the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation.

Education and Public Engagement programs at the New Museum are made possible, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Endowment support is provided by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund; the Skadden, Arps Education Programs Fund; and the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fund for Education Programs at the New Museum.
