Join us for a family workshop offered in conjunction with the exhibition “Chris Ofili: Night and Day,” the first American survey of work by the acclaimed British artist.

How do you see yourself? What would your portrait look like? Get inspired by Ofili’s many types of portraits on view in the Museum and create your own self-portraits using an array of materials. Then make unique picture frames to showcase these or other artworks.

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.
