Rose Art Museum to host Family Day on Saturday, April 20
The Rose Art Museum will host “Family Day at the Rose Art Museum” from 12 to 3 p.m. on the front lawn Saturday, April 20. The event is free and organized by curatorial intern Abdul Aziz Sohail ’13.
Families are invited to enjoy art-making activities and picnicking. Guided and kid-friendly discussions of the Rose’s exhibitions of modern and contemporary art will also be available. Discussions in Spanish will be provided upon request.
This is the first ever Family Day. Sohail, who had the opportunity to work on an independent project as part of his curatorial internship, chose to pursue education programming for the Waltham community.
“Family Day is an event that fits our mission and our need to reach out to Brandeis, Waltham, and beyond,” said Sohail. “At the same time, Brandeis students will interact with the Waltham community, so it is a great opportunity to have this two-way conversation.”
The Rose’s director of academic pograms, Dabney Hailey; office manager Nicole Rosenberg and Alexa Miller, who works with the Student Guide Program, have advised Sohail on this project.
Members of the Student Committee for the Rose Art Museum (SCRAM) and Waltham Group will act as guards and gallery guides.
