17 Aug Fall 2015 Season of Lively Family Programs Begins at the Jewish Museum in September
The Jewish Museum launches its fall 2015 season of family programs in September with a lively array of concerts, art workshops, and more. The fall line-up includes Sunday concerts by Alison Faith Levy on October 11, The FunkeyMonkeys on October 25, Ralph’s World on November 8, Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights on December 20, and Oran Etkin’s Timbalooloo on December 25. Also on the schedule are: Family Days on November 15 and December 6; holiday and vacation week drop-in art workshops October 1 and 2 and December 27, 28, 29 & 31; and family art activities every Sunday starting September 13.
In addition, families can visit Archaeology Zone: Discovering Treasures from Playgrounds to Palaces. In this engaging and thoroughly interactive experience, children become archaeologists as they search for clues about ancient and modern objects. Visitors can discover what happens after archaeologists unearth artifacts and bring them back to their labs for in-depth analysis. Children ages 3 through 10 magnify, sketch, and weigh objects from the past and the present, piece together clay fragments, interpret symbols, and dress in costumes. The children’s exhibition is open every day except Wednesday and Saturday.
