Things to do with kids in NYC this Saturday

Kick off your weekend and spend Saturday with the family at the city's best events and activities for kids.

Saturday, April 30

Fuerza Bruta

This Union Square spectacle is a visually impressive dance-rave thrill ride that merges striking imagery with techno music and aerial showboating. Kids will be wowed by the performers doing aerial and acrobatic stunts on the technicolor ceiling, but make sure to bring youngsters who can handle standing for the entire show. The music is very loud, but add to the ambience, and you can expect smoke and confetti to surround you during the performance. Ages 7 and up.

“Sew What?”

This exhibition on view in the Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery celebrates the textile arts by showcasing works from contemporary artists that use the material of fiber to create unique pieces. “Sew What?” brings attention to the various techniques artists use to transform fiber. Artists twist and spin fiber to create yarn which is then braided, knotted, looped or woven into flexible fabric or cloth used to make clothing or soft items. The textile arts encapsulate such artistic techniques as dyeing, printing, embroidery, needlework, quilting and sewing. Visitors to the exhibit will get a firsthand look at these creative textile practices as they explore the fiber work on display. All ages.

Ages 6 and up.
