Join us for on Saturday, December 9, for Family Saturday: Construct a Train! We will tour the exhibition Other Side: Art, Object, Self and talk about Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler’s piece, Constitution on Tour, then construct train cars out of a variety of colorful materials.

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 – 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition.

All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required—for additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
