Sugar & Spice: September Family Sundays at the Rubin Museum of Art


Sep 3, 2017 to Sep 24, 2017
01:00 PM until 04:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday.


Sundays are for families! Bring your family to the Rubin Museum for a Sunday afternoon of activities both kids and grownups will enjoy. Drop into the Education Center for some art-making, enjoy our 2:00 p.m. family exhibition tour, and go on your own thematic gallery search. This September, break the rules and play with your food! Make sculptures out of sugar and spice, inspired by chalimidi, a sweet rice flour dish made during the Hindu festival Vinayaka Chaturthi. During this early September festival, chalimidi is offered to one of the most popular Hindu deities, Ganesha, the elephant-headed “Remover of Obstacles.” Try to spot him holding a bowl of sweets in the Museum’s galleries.
