And on view this weekend only, “Lahza 2,” Arabic for “moment” or “glimpse,” is a project that features photos taken by Syrian children ages 7–12 in more than 200 informal settlements throughout Lebanon. In an effort inspired to both empower and overcome the trauma of war, the children took the images using disposable cameras made available by UNICEF and the organization ZAKIRA (“memory” in Arabic). Please join us!

Family Day is our free monthly event for families, kids, and the young at heart. On the second Sunday of every month, you’ll have a blast making art, going on artful adventures, meeting local musicians, dancers, and storytellers, and more!
