Museum Mile Festival 2013

New York Museum Week got off to an exciting start with last night’s Museum Mile festival, which transformed the streets of Fifth Avenue into an artsy kid-friendly block party and offered free entry to nine participating museums. Families visited El Museo del Barrio for a look at the brand-new exhibit “El Museo’s Bienal 2013: Here Is Where We Jump” and stopped by the Guggenheim to see “A Year with Children 2013,” an exhibition of art by NYC public school students. Kids got creative with museum-sponsored art workshops, drawing sidewalk chalk masterpieces while being serenaded by the tunes of local musicians. Children’s party entertainers Sammie and Tudie and Daisy Doodle also made an appearance, performing magic tricks and making balloon animals for little ones. Click through our photos from the event to see all the fest had to offer.
