We're honoring the 40th anniversary of the Rainbow Flag--the global symbol of LGBTQ pride, rights, and community. Created by Gilbert Baker and collaborators, the flag made its debut on June 25, 1978, at the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. Join us in the Great Stair Hall as we celebrate this design classic in style with a welcome by Amber Hikes, Philadelphia's Office of LGBT Affairs executive director; remarks by Michelle Millar Fisher, the Louis C. Madeira IV Assistant Curator of European Decorative Arts; and a flag-unfurling ceremony accompanied by the Philadelphia Voices of Pride. Afterwards, get creative at our art-making stations and enjoy a rainbow inspired cupcake by Cake Life. Admission is Pay What You Wish.
Join Watson Adventures on a unique scavenger hunt for Harry Potter fans 10 & up! Follow in the footsteps of young wizards on a field trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in search of art that echoes characters, places and enchanted objects in the famed Harry Potter books and movies. Be prepared to track down a Snape-like potions master, flying owls and dragons, Hagrid-like giants, and cloaked and masked figures as scary as any Death Eater or Dementor. The hunt is not an addition to or variation on Harry's adventures, but instead references to the books will provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful works of art. Kids must be accompanied by an adult, but all-adult teams can compete separately. Price includes museum admission for ages 13 and up. Advance purchase is required. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.
