Explore the world of Project LHAXX with a story time, crafts, and a closer look at the work on display at the Ackland for our June Virtual Family & Friends Sunday!
Each month, the Ackland hosts a free program for families, kids, and the young at heart featuring hands-on art activities, live performances, tours, and more. Although the Museum’s doors are closed for our community’s safety, you can still explore the art virtually!
A mix of D.I.Y. and live interactive activities await you, all inspired by the Ackland’s current site-specific installation, Project LHAXX.
