Virtual May Day Family Celebration
May 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC+0Free
Celebrate spring and learn more about art and environmental conservation with our virtual May Day family program. Explore how the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s team of art conservators preserve and protect works of art in a sustainable way. Then join the musical group Bash the Trash and get tips on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle and make your own upcycled musical instruments with step-by-step instructions, tips, and tricks. This interactive family workshop will conclude with a music and dance party where you can rock out using your newly crafted instruments. More information and a supply list will follow registration. This program is designed for children ages three to eight years old and their caretakers.
The program is part of a yearlong series cohosted by the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art.
Register now; one registration per family. A Zoom link and a list of suggested materials will be sent to registered participants 24–48 hours in advance of the workshop.
