Editor's Pick: 

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 their 2:00 p.m. family exhibition tour, and go on your own thematic gallery search.

SEPTEMBER SUNDAYS: SUGAR & SPICE
Break the rules and play with your food! Make sculptures out of sugar and spice, inspired by chalimidi, a sweet rice flour dish made during the Hindu festival Vinayaka Chaturthi. During this early September festival, chalimidi is offered to one of the most popular Hindu deities, Ganesha, the elephant-headed “Remover of Obstacles.” Try to spot him holding a bowl of sweets in the Museum’s galleries.

OCTOBER SUNDAYS: BOARD GAMES & BRIGHT LIGHTS
Make and learn how to play traditional Nepalese board games with your family. Sculpt cute, silly, or scary game pieces, and master your game face. In honor of Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, you can also create traditional diyas (candles) to take a little festival light home with you. In honor of October’s special family celebrations, live musicians will perform in the education center to set the tone for festive art-filled afternoons.

NOVEMBER SUNDAYS: MINDFULNESS POETRY
November is the season to give thanks and reflect as the year ends. Engage your contemplative mind at Family Sundays this month by writing your own mindfulness poems.
