Overview

The Broad’s Family Weekend Workshops offer families with children activities and workshops to engage with the art of The Broad museum as well as with Chef Timothy Hollingsworth of Otium, the restaurant adjacent to the museum. Workshops are presented bilingually in English and Spanish and give families the opportunity to make their own creative souvenirs to take home inspired by the Broad collection. Family Weekend Workshops are free, but have limited availability and entrance is not guaranteed without a reservation.

Families who reserve tickets in advance will receive a wristband when they check in onsite at the museum. Additional timed tickets for cooking demonstrations will also be available at check in. Workshops and timed tickets for cooking demonstrations will be available to families with wristbands on a first come, first served basis. Family Weekend Workshops are for families with children ages 3 and up.

Transform Yourself!

Remake yourself using some of the techniques applied by artists Takashi Murakami, whose interest in toys, anime, and video games, and Keith Haring, whose use of iconic linear shapes and pulsing movement, are on view in the Broad collection. You'll take away a one-of-a-kind photograph.

Recycle and Accessorize

Inspired by El Anatsui's large quilt-like works in the Broad collection, you will create your own wearable statement piece made out of the discarded and recycled materials which make up the “fabric” of our lives, and follow Anatsui's vision connecting consumption, waste, and the environment.

Protest Posters

As evidenced by a recent surge in social activism, protest posters are a powerful tool in voicing one’s thoughts. Not only are they an opportunity for people to make a statement, they are artistic pieces in their own right. Using paper, markers, and imagery, create your own protest poster and make your own statement. Several artists in the Broad collection, including Barbara Kruger and Christopher Wool, use their art as a tool to make their voices heard.
