Free First Saturday: What’s Happening!

Part of Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties, HIJACK at 20

In November, uncover surprises around every corner. Celebrate the unpredictable with performances and activities inspired by the exhibition Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties.

Enjoy free gallery admission and family fun for all on the first Saturday of each month. Activities designed for kids ages 6 to 12 are offered from 10 am to 3 pm.

Activity: Act Up, 10 am–3 pm

Cargill Lounge
Create, learn, and perform as you explore improvisational theater. Select materials to make a stage prop with artist/educator Ilene Krug Mojsilov. Pick up some improv skills from actor Jen Scott and try out them out onstage or in small groups.

Film: Mondo’s Search for the Sun, 10 am–5 pm

U.S. Bank Orientation Lounge
Embarking on a surreal quest, an old man must discover the key to his own heart before he can find the sun. Directed by Jana Prchalova, 2010, 11 minutes.

Performance: Saturday Morning Submarine Adventure Show, 11 am and 1 pm

Walker Cinema
Join Comedy Suitcase for an underwater adventure with hamsters, magical words, and lots of laughs. In this comedy show for all ages, the audience directs the cast of actors, puppets, special guest stars, and even an opportunity for kids ages 12 and under to share a few jokes. The Saturday Morning Submarine Adventure Show was created by improviser Molly Chase and puppetmaker Andy Kraft.

Activity: HIJACK, 11:30 am and 1:30 pm

Lecture Room
Get together for movement activities led by dance duo HIJACK inspired by Claes Oldenburg’s The Store—a space filled with objects he made, including sculptures of everyday items such as food, clothing, logos, and price tags. The Store was at once an installation, a performance, and a business: the artist was the store’s proprietor.
