Monthly drop-in Family Workshops at the AAM are designed to provide children and adults free opportunities to explore the galleries and create works of art on their own. Participants get to know one another better through engagement with new artists and ideas. Families are encouraged to communicate, reflect, and produce as artists together.
On April 11, the AAM joins nearly two hundred cities worldwide to host Slow Art Day. This format for gathering in museums invites visitors to look at a select number of artworks in greater depth and then to share their experiences.

In 1975, thirty-three-year-old Dutch-Californian artist Bas Jan Ader set out to cross the Atlantic in a thirteen-foot cruiser for a performance piece titled In Search of the Miraculous. He never returned. In a film that’s part unsolved mystery, part artist survey, director Rene Daalder chronicles his friend’s disappearance while also presenting Ader’s conceptual work.
