First Saturdays for Families: Alternative Migrations, 2018
Join us for Family Day presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Anna Craycroft: Motion into Being,” on view at the New Museum from January 17 to May 13, 2018. Families will physically enter the stage where Anna Craycroft shoots new footage every week for the animated film in her exhibition, presented in the Fifth Floor Gallery. Craycroft draws on traditions of folklore and fables, which often attribute human characteristics to objects and animals to narrate moral tales. In the Sky Room, families will make their own characters with clay and found objects, place them in a landscape, and bring them to life by creating stop-motion animations.
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.
