Join New Museum educators for a special First Saturdays for Families in collaboration with the 2013 IDEAS CITY Festival, a biennial festival created to explore the city and to effect change. Explore the Untapped Capital of the Bowery and the neighborhoods around it as we recreate the skyline and landscape of the Museum’s surroundings. Audiences will be asked to contribute their visions for a future Bowery in a series of collectively produced large-scale drawings.

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.


New Museum First Saturdays for Families are made possible, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts.

Additional generous support provided by the TD Charitable Foundation.

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

Education and public programs are made possible by a generous grant from Goldman Sachs Gives at the recommendation of David B. Heller & Hermine Riegerl Heller.
