With summer vacation season in full swing, it may prove difficult to find fun things to do with the family while you’re still here. The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art has just the event for some other-wordly entertainment, even if you can’t escape the city.
On June 21, from 5:15 – 7:30 PM, SMoCA will host its Annual Summer Family Night at the Museum. The night will take kids to outer space for stargazing and identifying UFOs, brought to you by an artist group that goes by the name “New Catalogue”
The theme is inspired by SMoCA’s summer exhibition, This is a Present From a Small Distant World, which takes its title from a recording called the Golden Record that was launched into outer space in 1977 on the NASA Voyager spacecraft. The Golden Record’s goal was to communicate Earth and the human experience to unknown life that may or may not be dwelling in confides of space.
Throughout the evening, families will be able to explore the constellations in a portable planetarium and Make an outer-space discovery in the exhibition This is a Present from a Small Distant World; and enjoy child-friendly tours of SMoCA’s other new summer exhibitions.
The cost is $20 per family of four with $4 extra for each additional person. Pre-registration is required and you can do so by calling (480) 874-4642.
