Monterey Museum of Art


The Monterey Museum of Art seeks support to expand Free Family Fun Day programming to include “Mobile Free Family Fun Days” to increase free arts enrichment for children and families.

The Big Idea

The Monterey Museum of Art’s Free Family Fun Days are designed to serve children and families through educational hands-on art activities, storytelling, and musical and dance performances—all free of charge. The program has been one of the Museum’s premier programs for many years, and serves one of MMA’s most diverse audiences. As a free program, Free Family Fun Day has been an important part of the Museum’s effort to increase accessibility to art. To expand the program and reach more children and families, the Museum seeks to offer “Mobile Free Family Fun Days,” as well. Mobile Free Family Fun Days will take “pop up” family art enrichment out into community spaces—fairs and festivals, local schools, and farmers markets throughout Monterey County. Importantly, Mobile Free Family Fun Days will offer arts enrichment to even more children and families who might not otherwise have access to art.

Wonderful program! We use Free Family Fun Day as a fun field trip to supplement our children's art education.
