Join us for a Family Day drawing inspiration from the exhibition MOTHA and Chris E. Vargas: Consciousness Razing,” on view at the New Museum from September 26 to February 3, 2019. Families may visit the fifth floor to explore a scale model of Christopher Park, which President Obama designated as a national monument to commemorate the Stonewall Riots. In the Sky Room, families are invited to collectively design a park, adding monuments, plants, or other elements they would like to see in the imagined landscape.

This First Saturday is on December 1, World AIDS day and the annual Day With(out) Art—a national day of action in response to the AIDS crisis. Visitors may wish to attend “Stonewall is Not Here Yet,” an afternoon of readings organized by artist Sharon Hayes and Chris E. Vargas or Visual AID’s premiere of ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS, screening in the theater.

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.

This program is also made possible, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
