Virtual Family Day: F is for Family

Start the new year reflecting on the people you love and call family. Hear tales of love and friendship from Nothando Zulu, founder of the African Storytellers Alliance. Be inspired to make your own “quilt,” learning about the amazing textile-upcycling tradition passed down through generations in Gee’s Bend, Alabama. View diverse family portraits in the collection, and draw a family portrait of your own. And look back on Mia Family Day over the years as you make a sculpture of our mascot, Yoshitomo Nara’s Your Dog! On January 10, click here for this month’s activities.
