      Family Workshop

      Family Workshops are free monthly drop-in opportunities that provide children and adults a chance to explore the galleries and create works of art on their own. Families get to know one another better through engagement with new artists and ideas. Families are encouraged to communicate, reflect, and produce as artists together. Recommended for families with children ages three to ten years old, these workshops are offered one Saturday each month from 10 AM–12 PM.

    • Families and visitors of all ages are invited for a special screening of Jellyfish Eyes, a coming-of-age tale with live action and Murakami-created characters. Masashi, a young boy who moves to the Japanese countryside with his mother, discovers a flying jellyfish-like creature that he befriends and names Kurage-bo. Masashi soon discovers that all of his classmates have similarly magical pets, known as F.R.I.E.N.D.s, which are controlled by electronic devices that the children use to battle one another. Despite their playful appearances, however, these F.R.I.E.N.D.s turn out to be part of a sinister plot that will threaten the entire town that Masashi must bravely overcome.

      Visitors are encouraged to bring along their childhood toys—their F.R.I.E.N.D.s—to take a picture with the Murakami-created characters Kurage-bo and Luxor, who will be present for the screening.
