Have you visited yet the National Museum of Mexican Art in Plsen? Located at 1852 West 19th Street, this museum is just a short bike ride for most of us who live in this community. Scanning its website, I was easily persuaded to visit the museum, given that the museum events satisfy perfectly my two passions: kid’s art activities and culture.
This month the museum offers plenty of engaging and culturally stimulating activities for children. The workshop, Family Sunday: Angel Ornaments with Guest Artist Patricia Carlos Dominguez, caught my eye. It takes place on Sunday, December 16th, 12-2pm, $2 fee per person, with prior registration required (Call to register 312-433-3908). Right after the workshop , the museum holds FREE Family Christmas Concert with Miguel de León (Concierto Familiar Navideño con Miguel de León), Sunday, December 16th, 2-3 pm. Earlier in December, the Children’s Workshop: Holiday Ornaments(Taller para niños: Adornos Navideños) is another workshop I can add to my kids to-do list. When: Saturday, December 8th, 10am-1pm, $5 per child, Registration: 312-433-3908.
For those of you who want to learn more about the wonders of this place, the museum offers FREE Public Tours, Saturdays, December 15, 12pm English, 1pm Español.
