Future Family Days at Nasher Museum of Art
January 21, 2018
Cardboard City II 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Save all of those holiday shipping boxes and put them to good use in the Nasher Museum’s Great Hall as we create Cardboard City II–bigger, badder, cardboardier! Last year’s Cardboard City was a blast and this year will be bigger than ever with two levels for building, more materials and students from Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering lending their expertise. Take breaks from the build with other art making opportunities, gallery explorations and live entertainment! Free Family Days at the Nasher Museum are supported by The Forest at Duke.

The Art of Science and the Science of Art 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Nasher Museum partners with Sarah P. Duke Gardens and the Duke Chemistry Society to explore the crossover between art and science as we create artistic chemical reactions and investigate the beautiful designs found in nature. Get wowed by Nasher Family Day favorite magician Joshua Lozoff as he does close-up magic in the Great Hall and performs a stage show in the lecture hall! Free Family Days at the Nasher Museum are supported by The Forest at Duke.
