Join us for a day of activities celebrating the power of creativity and innovation!

MSI will celebrate Family Day on Saturday, April 2, 2022, with a series of events inside the Museum. Families can participate in a day of community art experience, engage in creative activities, and explore the Black Creativity Juried Art Exhibition.

During this year's Family Day, guests can participate in a hands-on activity using parts designed and provided by the MSI Wanger Family Fab Lab. Guests will create a boutonniere holder with flowers provided by South Side Blooms and attach them to clothing or backpacks worn while visiting the Museum throughout the day. While guests assemble their creative pieces, representatives from South Side Blooms and its parent company Eco House will discuss their work in the community.
