Family Sundays

Bottled Scentiments

Sunday, December 12, 2021
1:00 PM–3:00 PM

Ages 3 and older with accompanying adults

Family Sundays are back in person! Bring your family to the Rubin Museum for an afternoon of creativity and self-exploration in our new space, the Mandala Lab, that both kids and their grown-ups will enjoy.

Preregistration is required for either the 1:00 PM or 2:00 PM time slots. The program is free for you and your family, and each ticket comes with free access to the Museum galleries. Each month we explore a new theme, with an art-making activity centered around that theme. A Museum educator will do a brief demonstration of the project, teach the art-making techniques, and let you explore ways to make the project your own.

December Family Sundays: Bottled Scentiment

Do you ever wish you could relive your favorite memories again and again? It can be tricky to accept that those moments are in the past. Practice letting go by creating a scented hand lotion that captures the smell of a memory, along with a drawing that represents what you remember. Then learn to let go of the past as you use your creation up over time.

Mandala Lab and Family Sundays are made possible with lead support from The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation, Rasika and Girish Reddy, Shelley and Donald Rubin, and the Tiger Baron Foundation.

Major support is provided by Agnes Gund, New York Life Insurance Company*, Con Edison, Anne and Albert Chao, Anne E. Delaney, Noah P. Dorsky, the Estate of Lisina M. Hoch, the Prospect Hill Foundation, Namita and Arun Saraf, Eileen Caulfield Schwab, Taipei Cultural Center in New York, and New York Life.

Public funds are provided by New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
