This family day fetes the Whitney's summer blockbuster, "Hopper Drawing," by offering exhibition tours, art workshops and a collaborative drawing project (with artist Jason Polan), among other fun activities. Kids will learn how the artist used his imagination to give his realistic images their moody, evocative resonance. The museum will open one hour early, so that families can have the museum to themselves from 10 to 11am. Ages 4 to 12.
