Join us on Saturday, March 23, at 2:00 pm to create an artwork inspired by the concept of time in the exhibition The Second Buddha: Master of Time. We will create time capsules full of keepsakes and visions of present day that we want to share with future generations. What would you want to take to the future?

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative collaboration through looking at artwork in our galleries, discussing and sharing ideas, and engaging in a hands-on art activity inspired by those conversations.

All programs run from 2:00 to 3:30 PM and are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions.

Registration is required. You can register beginning one week before each program. For more information and to register, call our Visitors Services Desk at 518-580-8080. We welcome visitors of all abilities! Be prepared to get messy and have fun! Share your Family Saturday photos on social media by including #tangfamsat.
