The Figge’s Big Picture program returned this summer, in a different format. For the past 3 weeks, virtual free programming has been streaming live from the museum on Wednesday mornings from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. via Zoom. The program will continue through Aug 5.Figge’s Big Picture in the House Goes Virtual

This Wednesday July 29 will mark the fourth week of Big Picture in the House. In this lesson they will explore why are we so fascinated with places we cannot reach. Historically, the West was thought to be a mysterious and fantastically place full of grand adventures and new opportunities. Join the Figge as they explore our never-ending interest in the West through a discussion of the brand new Magnetic West exhibition, later creating collages based on our own mysterious places.

This program is suggested for ages 6-12 years old (younger children are required to have an adult helper).
