Milwaukee, Wis. – Nov. 17, 2020 – On Sunday, December 6, the Milwaukee Art Museum invites families to go online for a virtual-only holiday edition of the Museum’s event Kohl’s Family Sundays at Home: The Gift of Art. Beginning at 10 a.m., visitors to mam.org/family-sundays can get into the spirit of the season with activities for the whole family.

Virtual participants will be able to listen to music of the season and take a celebration-inspired tour of the Museum’s collection. Families can learn about zines (homemade publications), create a collage, and more with the Museum’s team of educators.

The Museum’s executive chef will provide a how-to on making a special wintery treat in Windhover Hall. Artwork completed during the event can be shared via social media, using the hashtag #MAMStudioAtHome and will be displayed on the event webpage.

There is no charge to take part in Kohl’s Family Sundays at Home. Families can make an online donation to support the Museum, local artists, vendors and partners. Although Kohl’s Family Sundays: The Gift of Art is virtual this year, and in-person events have been canceled, the Milwaukee Art Museum is open for visitors, with new safety protocols in place. Timed tickets for entry can be purchased at mam.org/visit. Admission for kids 12 and under is always free, thanks to Kohl’s.

The Kohl’s Family Sundays at Home: The Gift of Art content will be available Dec. 6 to Dec. 20, 2020.
