One of our Best Family Days Ever!!!

A great time was had by all last Saturday at our Brian Selznick Family Day! The band(The Wuvbirds), magician(Larry Clark), activities, and games were all in tune with the illustrations now on view in From Houdini to Hugo: The Art of Brian Selznick.

We gave visitors a chance to have their questions answered by Brian Selznick during his virtual visit, which was great!

We had nothing to do with the weather, but that was pretty great too. There were even areas to create sidewalk chalk art, and bunny rabbits for petting....not for magic tricks.

The Room of Wonders was full the entire event and the galleries and gardens were aflutter with children and adults completing the scavenger hunt and admiring the detailed work of Brian Selznick.

Kids made Frindles, drew pictures, had their faces painted and much more during one of our most loved family events. 

We hope all of our visitors realized that there is a little magic in all of us and we can't wait to see what you discover at the next Family Day. See you next time!

Thank you to all of our volunteers, Le Bonheur and MCA for your hard work.
