Join us for a family workshop offered in conjunction with the upcoming exhibition 2015 Triennial: “Surround Audience,” on view from February 25 through May 24, 2015. A signature initiative of the New Museum, the Triennial is the only recurring international exhibition in New York City devoted to early-career artists from around the world.

What surrounds you? Where do you see yourself? With New Museum staff, investigate how we imagine sounds of the city, trace your steps through the urban landscape, and communicate about your environment with others in diverse ways.

New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children aged between three and eight 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.


Support for the 2015 Triennial: “Surround Audience” can be viewed here.
