Create portraits of people who inspire you using various techniques drawn from African American artists like Wadsworth Jarrell and Elizabeth Catlett. Watch a shadow-puppet show by local artist and activist Ty Chapman, and make your own shadow puppet. Sing along and hear tales affirming love from Nothando Zulu, founder of the Black Storytellers Alliance, and create your own love letter for Black Lives this Valentine’s Day. Find all activities on February 14 → link here.


Families can also pick up a free Family Day Artist Tote at Mia’s Third Avenue entrance February 13-14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., available until supplies last. You’ll find materials to make a shadow puppet, colorful portraits, and collages to celebrate Family Day.⁠

The materials in the kit complement the Virtual Family Day program’s activities but are not essential to enjoying the activities. Click here to learn more about the items and activities featured in this month’s tote.
