3. Stroller Tours at KMA
New parents, grandparents, and caregivers are invited to join the group of cultural enthusiasts at Stroller Tours, an original series of exhibition tours specially designed for adults with children under 18 months old. Following light breakfast snacks provided by Bedford Village Pastry, participants are invited to join an interactive tour and engage in exhibition-focused discussions and art activities inspired by the Museum’s 2012 Tri-State Juried Exhibition, Art to the Point. Tours are free for KMA members, $5 for non-members, and do not require registration.
4. Check out the Wolf Conservation Center
offers a number of interesting events - this weekend and beyond, for example, you can join naturalists for an opportunity to photograph Ambassador wolves Atka, Alawa and Zephyr. The WCC sayd "perfect light and a fresh coat of winter fur on the wolves will make for exquisite photographs. Hot beverages will be offered in the woodstove-heated classroom." I just took my kids to the mythology of wolves session and they thought the stories we heard were interesting, but meeting the wolves upclose was even better.
