Free family fun all day Sunday at SFMoMA

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art hosts its annual Target Family Day celebration, an opportunity for families to have fun while creating, viewing and learning about art — for free.

Titled “A Sense of Place,” the programming features hands-on activities for families spotlighting works by Italian photographer Gabriele Basilico and Henri Matisse, and focusing on how those artists develop a sense of place in their works.

Children and their parents also will have the opportunity to create their own artwork, as well as view the community installation of a three-dimensional garden mural, directed by artists Jennifer Ewing and Leo Germano.

Other festivities include live music by Supercussion, screenings of the film “Winged Migration,” treasure hunts and a reading of the 1962 classic “This is San Francisco” by Miroslav Sasek. The fun happens Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; the museum is at 151 Third St., San Francisco. Call (415) 357-4000 or visit www.sfmoma.org.
