Start the day in the BAM/PFA galleries making art with artists. Play with one hundred pounds of clay in Kids Club (p. 9), our gallery dedicated to involving children in the artistic process. Create with collage and stamps in a workshop focused on color, inspired by our new exhibition Color Shift (p. 7). Explore the galleries with tours specially designed for families. And at 2 p.m. tap your toes to a cappella ensemble SoVoSó's irresistible mix of jazz, gospel, and world music. Family Day culminates at the PFA Theater with a special free film program, Take Aways, the first of a four-part series presenting animated shorts adapted from beloved children’s books (p. 18). Followed by a reading and show-and-tell by local children’s book author/ illustrator Christy Hale (The East-West House, Dreaming Up). Free tickets available at the box office beginning at 2:30.
