Join us for Family Day presented in conjunction with the exhibition MOTHA and Chris E. Vargas: Consciousness Razing,” on view at the New Museum from September 26 to February 3, 2019. Employing a scale model of Christopher Park, “Consciousness Razing” reimagines how we remember the 1969 Stonewall Riots. Inviting 12 artists of different generations to propose new monuments for the park, Vargas offers new narratives for our understanding of historical events. Families are invited to recycle provided materials and personal items to construct monument proposals of their own.

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.
