Sundays are for families! Bring your family to the Rubin Museum for a Sunday afternoon full of family-friendly activities. Drop into the Education Center for some art-making, enjoy the 2pm family exhibition tour, and go on your own thematic gallery search.

JUNE SUNDAYS: Spectacular Star Scapes (not offered June 17)
June Family Sundays spotlight the Otolith Group, an art collective featured in the Rubin’s exhibition, A Lost Future. The Otolith Group’s films are inspired by science fiction and imagined futures. To complement their work, create an imaginative, miniature world of your own inside a tiny bottle. What will your dreamy star-scape look like?

JULY SUNDAYS: Inner Voyages
Embark on a journey without leaving New York! Get inspired by artists Ghiora Aharoni and Arthur Liou, whose video artworks at the Rubin depict their long pilgrimages (respectively) riding on rickshaws and walking 21,000 feet up Mount Kailash. At July Family Sundays, envision a person, place, or time you would like to visit and map the journey you would take to get there. Challenge yourself to design a map both colorful and layered that symbolizes your inner voyage.

AUGUST SUNDAYS: Togetherness Tapestries
Stitch together the pieces to your future! August Family Sundays honor the Shoton Festival (Yogurt Festival) in Lhasa, Tibet, during which thousands of people gather to unveil a larger-than-life thangka of the Buddha Shakyamuni. Inspired by the scale of the thangka used in this festival, we invite you to lend a hand in stitching a collaborative tapestry and embrace creativity with community.

SEPTEMBER SUNDAYS: Future Figures
Dive into artist Chitra Ganesh’s fantastical exhibitions, Face of the Future and The Scorpion Gesture, by creating a poster of moveable, futuristic figures. Ganesh reimagines how science fiction, mythology, and storytelling intersect. Inspired by the artist’s brilliant color palette and graphic animation style, bring to life the characters in your imagination by animating them with movable joints.

OCTOBER SUNDAYS: Rings of Reason
Explore ideas of growth and belonging at October Family Sundays. This art-making activity, called Tree Rings / Reflect Select / Self Visions is inspired by Matti Braun’s immersive installation, R.T/S.R/V.S., which features a shimmering reflecting pool interspersed with tree stumps as stepping stones. Just as tree rings show the passage of time, use a slice of a tree trunk to make a print, then add symbols, drawings, and writing to represent important events, people, and places in your life that have made you who you are today.
