Weekend Kids’ Pick: First Saturdays For Families at the New Museum

It’s “First Saturdays For Families” at the New Museum tomorrow.  This month’s program is title “Time Divisa” and its part of the “Ungovernables,” the museum’s  2012 Triennial.

Artist José Antonio Vega Macotela exchanges his time with prisoners in a Mexico City jail and, in so doing, asks, “What can I do for you that you cannot do for yourself? How can your creativity produce original objects and drawings?” During tomorrow’s program, participants will discover what we can do for each other through a variety of activities including message making and trading, experimental dances, poems, and paper sculptures.

“First Saturdays for Families” is a free event (children are always admitted to the museum for free; up to two adults may accompany a child on Saturday).  It’s recommended for families with children ages 4-15.  No preregistration is required; admission is first-come-first-served.   First Saturdays takes place between 10 a.m.-noon.
