1. Art for Families: Connection – On Saturday, May 11, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, families can explore the sensations of sound and touch through the exhibition “Toshiko Takaezu: Worlds Within.” This workshop, designed for children ages 5-11, will help participants connect more deeply with land and earth through their senses.

2. LIC Springs! – Celebrate Long Island City at the community block festival on Saturday, May 18, from 12 pm to 5 pm. The event will feature live music, dance, art, and more on Vernon Boulevard between 50th & 46th Avenues. The Noguchi Museum will host interactive activities, including assembly models of Noguchi’s sculptures, and participants will receive a free pass to the museum.

3. Open Studio: Sound – On Saturday, May 25, from 11 am to 2 pm, the museum opens its doors for a family-friendly studio session. This event allows visitors of all ages to create mixed media artworks that experiment with different sound qualities, inspired by “Toshiko Takaezu: Worlds Within.”

These programs offer a great way for families to engage with art by doing activities together, supported by educational efforts that help build community and creativity.
