The Penn Museum Presents Two “Second Sunday” Series Kicking Off This Sunday, September 9: Family Workshops And Culture Films
Starting this weekend, the Penn Museum is hosting great, free-with-admission programming on Second Sundays.
The first series is Family Second Sunday Workshops, 1-4 p.m. from September through May 2013.
Geared to families with children ages 5 and up, each Family Second Sunday Workshop features a craft, touchable artifacts and gallery activities. Attendees may drop in anytime between 1 and 4 p.m. to participate.
Plus, attendees to a Family Second Sunday Workshop automatically become members of Penn Museum’s Art Excavators Club. Club members who attend three Family Second Sunday workshops receive a free surprise. This Sunday’s kick-off workshop is themed “Pharaoh Fantasies.”
The other series is a brand new Second Sunday Culture Films series, exploring the lives of people on society’s margins through a wide range of recent documentary films. Faculty experts from the University of Pennsylvania and other institutions will introduce each film, with open discussion following the screenings.
Presented in association with the 2012-2013 Penn Humanities Forum on Peripheries, Penn Museum’s Second Sunday Culture Films Series runs from September through February, beginning at 2 pm in the Museum’s Rainey Auditorium. This Sunday’s kick-off event is “Smokin’ Fish,” by Cory Mann and Luke Griswold-Turgis.
Both series are free with museum admission and pre-registration is not required.
