"American Legends" Family Day at the Whitney Museum of American Art

The latest show at the Whitney Museum of American Art, "American Legends: From Calder to O'Keeffe," is in itself reason enough to get your crew to the museum, but this past weekend families were treated to an extra-special family opening to celebrate the exhibition. Kids and their parents got a tour of the show, learning about iconic artists such as Charles Demuth, Frank Stella and Georgia O'Keeffe through the works on view. They also took part in gallery activities, got to work making art in a workshop and enjoyed refreshments. See if you can find your family by clicking through our slide show. If you didn't go but wish you had, the Whitney's got another family event, "Sinister Pop" Family Day, scheduled for February 9, 2013.
