Join us for Second Sundays for Families, a program at the museum featuring art making and storytelling around a different theme each month. Enter the Koret Education Center on Floor 2 to explore new artists, ideas, and art materials in an open-ended, drop-in environment. The entire museum is your inspiration! We believe in the joy of making, so come ready to relax, experiment, and enjoy yourself.
December 10: Tag – You’re it!
10:30 a.m.–3 p.m.
Koret Education Center, Floor 2
Tagging is an art form that you can see all over the city, from buildings to freeway signs to mailboxes. If you had your own tag, what would it be? Your name, a symbol, or something else entirely? Explore how to make your mark using a variety of art materials!
Please note: Sunday, December 10 is also a special Free Admission Day. Therefore, we anticipate higher-than-usual attendance. There might be wait times for the tagging activity in the Koret studios, but we will have plenty of self-guided activities to enjoy while you wait. Keep in mind, this is not a Free Family Day, so we won’t have a performance or a scavenger hunt. We will extend our Second Sunday capacity as much as we can, so as many folks can have fun with us as possible!
This season, we’re taking inspiration from this beautiful documentary, Las Muralistas: Our Walls, Our Stories (2022). Check it out below:
Las Muralistas: Our Walls, Our Stories is a 25-minute documentary directed by Javier Briones and edited by Claudia Escobar, in partnership with SFMOMA. The film features women muralists whose works cover the walls of San Francisco’s Mission District. The muralism movement that emerged in the 1970s in the Mission District marked the beginning of a tradition of activism, expression, and community building through public art. Hear from artists Juana Alicia, Smokie Arce, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Elaine Chu, Priya Handa, Yolanda López, Consuelo Méndez, Irene Pérez, Patricia Rodriguez and more on their experiences, the impact of femmes in the movement and the effort to make space for future muralistas.
