If you’re looking for a fun family, friend or personal outing today, try a museum visit. It’s Art Museum Day, sponsored by The Association of Art Museum Directors, with free admission to institutions throughout the world, including Santa Fe.
Times are changing, and one of the biggest changes is the way museums engage their communities. Exhibitions of the collections and special touring shows will always be part of the offering provided for our viewing pleasure. In addition, museums have come to see the educational and social work of the community as part of their responsibility. This mandate is addressed through interpretive programming created for children and adults alike. If you’d like to learn how to make your own pastels, mix pigments to create paint, discuss a book on the life of an artist, take a walk in the great American West, or bring your preschool age child or grandchild to an interdisciplinary, hands-on activity that jump-starts their imagination, you can almost always find information on the museum’s website. Many of the activities are free or at reduced rates.
