Sci Fi Art Show Makes Art Monstrously Cool

Can't imagine ever convincing your kids to step foot inside an art gallery? Well, think again. Art can be cool if it's the Sci Fi Art Show at MF Gallery on the Lower East Side. Let your kids eyeball the aliens, robots, and monsters in this fun exhibit and broaden their horizons of what art can and should be.And how cool would the above work of art be in a child's bedroom or nursery?

While you're in the neighborhood stop by Economy Candy and treat your children and yourself for good behavior with some of the nostalgic old-fashioned and hard-to-find candies you'll find there. (One of the 100 activities on our NYC Life List for Kids.) Then go home inspired and create some of your own sci-fi works together.

An added bonus: unlike museums, galleries are FREE!

MF Gallery (157 Rivington St. btw Clinton and Suffolk)
Saturday, January 12th through February 16th, 2008.
