Public Program:
New Museum First Saturdays for Families: Posters for the Future
September 5 2009
Explore the exhibition “Emory Douglas: Black Panther.” This images in this show are nearly forty years old, but they are still as powerful as when Emory Douglas first created them: thought-provoking pictures, meant to change the world. Inspired by Douglas’s work, create a poster sharing your stands on contemporary issues through a variety of graphic techniques, such as printing and collage.

From 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., families are invited into our theater to view a 30-minute program of short films provided by Brooklyn International Film Festival’s kidsfilmfest.

New Museum First Saturdays for Families are free of charge. This program is designed and recommended for families with children 4 to 15 years old, and includes free New Museum admission for up to 2 adults per family. Children under 18 are always admitted free. No preregistration is required. Tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
