Family Sunday

Holi Celebration

Sunday, March 31, 2024
1:00 PM–3:00 PM

Ages 3 and older with accompanying adults


Join us for a special Family Sunday at the Rubin! Bring your family to the Mandala Lab on the third floor for an afternoon of creativity and self-exploration that both kids and grown-ups can enjoy. A Museum educator does a brief demonstration of the project, teaches the art-making techniques, and lets you explore ways to make the project your own. 

At 1:00 PM, join us for a special Holi celebration in the theater featuring a dance performance and workshop for families with Meha Sadana.  

Reserve your 1:00 PM Family Sunday ticket today to secure your spot for the dance activity in the theater. The program is free for your family, and each ticket comes with free access to the Museum galleries.


March Family Sundays

This month, we honor the holiday Holi, which welcomes spring and celebrates the triumph of good over evil. Dating back thousands of years, the colorful Holi tradition of throwing brightly dyed powders has spread from India  throughout the world. Mark this vibrant holiday at the Rubin Museum by creating a work of art that evokes the spectacular shades of Holi. 


This special Family Sunday is presented in partnership with The Culture Tree, an organization that provides South Asian–themed educational and cultural programs that enrich the lives of children and their families and promote a deeper connection with their roots and the world around them.
