3rd Sunday Fundays

Bring the whole family to the Taft Museum of Art to experience a free afternoon of great art, kid-sized art info, hands-on fun, family-friendly performances, and animal encounters. Most activities are ongoing throughout the afternoon, so stop by when you have time and stay as long as you like. Free fun for everyone!

Bring a blanket! Purchase a bite to eat (11 a.m.–3 p.m.) before or during the event and enjoy it outside or inside the Café area. This special family lunch option will be served in place of regular Café service.


Celebrate Community
Sunday, October 21, 11:15 a.m.–4 p.m.

Celebrate the power of art and love during this Funday. At the Art Cart, play with different poses that make you feel powerful, and make your own paper doll power figure.

Enjoy a storytime with the Cincinnati Public Library from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.  Join Duncanson Artist-in-Residence Vanessa German at 3 p.m. for a performance that will inspire you to love yourself.

How do you celebrate community? Share your art at the “Celebrate Community” Pop-up Museum.* Bring something you made that fits the theme and display it in our temporary “museum.”


*More about Pop Up Museums

A Pop Up Museum is a temporary exhibition based on a theme that invites people to share something they made that reflects the topic. This “Celebrate Community” Pop Up Museum invites you to share your story and connect with others. Bring something you made that you feel celebrates community!

Examples of art you might bring include, photographs, paintings, drawings or other small-scale artwork. Two-dimensional art should not exceed 24 x 36 inches. Three-dimensional art should not exceed 24 x 24 x 24 inches.

Artwork will be displayed throughout the day on tables and easels as well as being clipped to clotheslines in our garden tent from 11:15 a.m. – 4 p.m. Display materials will be provided. Participants are invited to bring out and remove their art at any point throughout the day until 4 p.m.—the artwork does not need to be on view the entire day.

Because this is a temporary experience, all artwork must be retrieved by its owner by 4 p.m. All artwork left behind will disappear along with the Pop Up Museum. The Taft Museum of Art assumes no responsibility for the art displayed in the Pop Up Museum or left behind after its closing.

Please no firearms, fireworks, explosives or pets. Because this is a family event, all art must be kid-friendly and rated G.


Up in the Air
Sunday, November 18, 1–4 p.m.

Learn about animal and bird textures at the Art Cart and make an “airy” craft to take home. The Space Painter, Tom Sparough, will get things flying during his juggling show at 2 p.m. Learn about the hunters of the air in an interactive presentation by RAPTOR Inc. at 3 p.m.
