The holidays are just around the corner and we are eager to celebrate! Join us on Tuesday, December 7 for fun-filled family experiences. The Museum has free admission on December 7 for our First Tuesday programming. Enjoy a Dr. Seuss-inspired day with hat-making in the Studio, take a wintery family photo, watch a puppet show, go on a family tour, hear story time with the Dallas Public Library, watch a storytelling performance, and listen to the Grinch tell the story, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The Grinch will make an appearance at the Museum before he returns to the AT&T Performing Arts Center for the evening performance of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical.
Stay after First Tuesday activities to get into the holiday spirit with a self-guided tour of the Museum’s collections – “Seeing Red” and “All that Glitters” are especially festive! From 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. enjoy cookie decorating with the Museum’s Executive Chef, Brian Felicella. Chef Brian will lead families in a step-by-step process on cookie-making, from rolling out the dough to cutting it into fun shapes. Families will have the chance to use sprinkles, decorations, and different icings to trim their own cookie. Yum!
Continue the festivities in the Arts District; the DMA, the Crow Collection of Asian Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center will all stay open until 6:00 p.m. As you stroll through the Arts District, enjoy listening to a bell choir performance, holiday shopping in museum gift stores, and at 6:00 p.m. make your way to the AT&T Performing Arts Center for their tree lighting.
