Up Up and Away! Now Boarding Family Day

During Up, Up and Away! Now Boarding Family Day, visitors will get to create and wear their own pilot wing pins and catch a tour of the DAM collection with a real pilot to experience works of art through the lens of an aviation expert. Families also will get the opportunity to create and build their own airports of the future in various environments such as Frozenville, Lunar City, and New Sealand. Plus visitors can participate in crafting their own paper planes in the Hamilton Building freight elevator. Then they can do test flights with their crafts out on the plaza.

Also, visit our Hotspots — Sketch Up and Africa — where you can create art right in the galleries! And of course, you can always check out a backpack or art tube and play in the Just for Fun Center and Kids Corner!

This event celebrates the Now Boarding: Fentress Airports + The Architecture of Flight exhibition.
