Hat Decorating at Mingei International Museum’s Family Sunday!

Mingei International Museum, located in the Balboa Park area of San Diego, conducts a fun Family Sunday from Noon-4pm the third Sunday of each month. Mingei’s Family Sunday offers discount admission, of only $5 per family, or $3 for individuals. Attendees can explore the museum’s colorful exhibitions of folk art, craft and design, win a prize for completing a treasure hunt as well as participate in other activities such as storytelling and hands-on projects.

To celebrate the new exhibition HATS & HEADDRESSES, the upcoming Family Sunday, on June 17th, 2012 (Father’s Day), will feature Hat Decorating, provided by The Village Hat Shop. Visitors may choose from plain hats to decorate, or a paper bag hat project. This will be a fun opportunity for families to be creative together!

We’ve truly enjoyed the Family Sunday’s we’ve attended. If you’re looking for something to do on Father’s Day, this could be a great thing to do together, and you can’t beat $5 for the family! Perhaps we’ll see you there!

The upcoming Family Sunday, on March 18th, 2012 will include an art project featuring Bookmaking with Liza Alvarez. Lisa conducted a similar Family Sunday at Mingei last September, and is back for another session! I’ve heard super great things about Liza’s bookmaking projects from people that attended her last Family Sunday, as well as Mingei employees. You can see some of her work by visiting her website HERE.
