Strolling into Art

Babies are welcome! Join us for a casual and lively discussion in the galleries—just for parents and caregivers and their pre-toddler age children. Expect a special kind of outing that allows for learning, art, and adult conversation where no one minds if a baby lends his or her opinion with a coo or a cry. Bring your stroller or front pack carrier.
