Family Day Returns to the Cantor Arts Center April 25

Art Projects, Performers, and Storytelling, plus Free Admission

April 25, 11 am to 3 pm

Stanford, California — Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University invites the community to attend Family Day, this year celebrating the Chinese culture, from 11 am to 3 pm on Sunday, April 25. “Family Day is a wonderful way for parents to enjoy our museum with their children,” said Amy Salisbury, Family Day chair. This free event features hands-on art projects, storytelling, performers, and music in conjunction with the Center’s landmark exhibition “Tracing the Past, Drawing the Future: Master Ink Painters in 20th–Century China.” The event is sponsored by a generous grant from the Koret Foundation.

Family Day is geared toward children ages 5 to 12, but all are welcome. Children of all ages can choose from hands-on activities, such as ink drawings, dragon puppets, paper lanterns, opera masks, and paper blossom trees. Chinese lion dancers will perform, and storyteller Margaret More will entertain in the galleries. Family-friendly food will be available for purchase (cash only), or families can bring a picnic to enjoy in the Rodin Sculpture Garden or on the lawn. Family Day is held rain or shine. Admission is free.
