What:

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) welcomes families and intergenerational audiences to the newly expanded and transformed museum for its second Free Family Day on Sunday, October 23, 2016. While the museum is always free for visitors 18 and younger, on Free Family Day it is also free for up to two adults accompanying each visitor 18 and younger. Tickets are available on-site only on October 23, and cannot be reserved in advance. Free Family Days are generously supported by the John & Marcia Goldman Foundation.

Free Family Day features the culmination of User Agreement, a month-long project by artist duo Lucky Dragons. This finale takes the form of a day-long exploration of peacemaking throughout the museum, unfolding in six acts. User Agreement examines the methods and tools we use to generate peace on many scales, and considers how we can better address issues ranging from global conflict to interpersonal quarrels.

Why:

Performance All Ages brings newly commissioned, participatory artworks to intergenerational audiences and facilitates direct engagement with artists through workshops, gallery activations and live performances. Three artists join SFMOMA for month-long residencies each year.
