Danforth Museum in Framingham, Mass., is planning a Free Fun Friday for kids and families, 10-5 p.m., Friday, July 13. The event is sponsored by the Highland Street Foundation and NMTW Credit Union.
A big tent will be set up on the front lawn where kids will participate in fun art activities: painting, collaging, sculpture-making, and chalk drawing.
Inside the museum, families will have the opportunity to participate in a spy mission and in their search for works of art, they'll learn how to look at and understand contemporary paintings, photography, prints, and sculpture. An activity passport and map will guide families throughout the museum and provide fun activities along the way.
