SAINT LOUIS, MO.-
The Saint Louis Art Museum
announces Family Sundays: "Majestic Ming," a program of art projects and tours for families each Sunday in March from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Inspired by the Museum's featured exhibition, Power and Glory: Court Arts of China’s Ming Dynasty, "Majestic Ming" will explore imperial art made from clay, gold, jade, lacquer and thread. Each week's art activity is planned so that all ages can have fun and create together. Every Sunday at 2:30 pm, a lively 30-minute tour will guide families through the Museum's collection and highlight pieces that inspired the art projects.
Once a month, the Family Sunday program features a special family performance, film, or artist demonstration to expand on the featured theme. In March the Museum will host "Ming Dynasty Family Weekend" on Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29. This two-day festival celebrates the glory of the Ming dynasty with featured classical Chinese music and dance, artist demonstrations, storytellers, art projects, treats and tours.
Admission to Power and Glory is $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, $6 for children 6 to 12, free for children younger than 6, free to Members every day and free to all on Fridays. The Museum's Family Sundays are supported by Macy's.
