Kids and Families

Kids and their families have so much to explore at the BMA! Travel to faraway lands, make history come alive, and discover the world of art together in our galleries and family spaces. From family tours and art activities to cultural celebrations on special Family Days, there’s always something new to do. Make plans to visit during one of our many family programs, or stop by anytime for free fun in Bart’s ArtVenture and Bart’s Lair Under the Stairs.

Holi Festival

Holi Festival

March 12, 2016

The Museum and ICS are thrilled to host Holi, the Indian celebration of color for the sixth year in a row! Last year, over 2,000 people came out to enjoy classical Indian and Bollywood style dancing and music, food, storytelling, art-making, and gallery exploration.

The Museum has one of the largest collections of Asian art in the Southeast, so there is plenty to see! The day ends with a huge celebration outside to play Holi, which involves the throwing of powdered colors, a traditional part of Holi celebrations. Make sure to wear something you don’t mind having to wash! There is truly something for everyone.
