You probably already have plans for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day this year—so let’s give the kids a turn with Children’s Day/Día del Niño!

Inspired by the Mexican tradition of celebrating Día del Niño on April 30 and our latest exhibition, Diego Rivera’s America, we’re hosting a family day packed with all-ages creative fun to celebrate the children in our lives.

Come explore the galleries with free admission to the exhibition; listen to live music and performances by Ballet Folklorico, El Trompito Show, Mariachi Quetzal, and Los Chinelos; and enjoy family artmaking, artist demos, storytelling, face painting, and more! From expert performances to hands-on creative projects, we have festivities galore in store for the young and young-at-heart. Performances are presented in collaboration with the Latin Art Organization of Arkansas, led by LAOA director Araceli Lopez.

So stop on by, and help us celebrate Día del Niño in style. See you there!

Free, no tickets required. Drop by anytime from 12 to 4 p.m.


About Diego Rivera’s America

Developed by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), Diego Rivera’s America examines a prolific time in the artist’s life through over 170 works, including his drawings, easel paintings, frescoes, and more. Between the early 1920s and the early 1940s, Rivera worked in both Mexico and the United States and found inspiration in the social and cultural life of the two countries. He imagined an America—broadly understood—that shared an Indigenous past and an industrial future, and where cooperation, rather than divisions, were paramount.
