Zoom Sunday Activities

Super Sunday

Super Sundays feature a range of fun and engaging activities and special events for the entire community. Designed to engage all ages—adults and young people alike—Super Sundays take place once during each set of exhibitions at the Wex.

Zoom: Family Film Festival 2010

<em>Zoom</em>brings an assortment of entertaining and acclaimed films to the Wex each year. This time the festival features the return of Jim Henson's Muppets and new behind-the-scenes moments from<em>Sesame Street</em>, short films from around the globe, animation galore, and a can’t-miss Charlie Chaplin classic for the whole family. Families can also enjoy hands-on activities, our free Saturday morning breakfast and pajama party, and a Saturday afternoon ice cream social.

Sun, Dec 5, 2010 12 PM

What a day for families to visit the Wex: it's both Six Solos Super Sunday and the Zoom Family Film Festival! Come to see Six Solos or for some Zoom movies (see the complete schedule here), and find loads more fun.

Kids and families can color pictures, leave a comment on our "comment wall," play video games designed by kids in our summer workshops, make buttons, or take a family-friendly tour of our galleries. Young visitors can also try their hands at puppeteering for (closed-circuit) TV. In this special activity with artist Emily Westenhouser, kids and families can make their own puppets, or use ones we'll have on hand, and act out skits and scenes in front of a video camera. Instead of watching the action unfold on the stage of a puppet theater, puppeteers and viewers alike will see the shows on nearby TVs.

Visitors of all ages will also enjoy activities inspired by our current exhibitions. You can make your own architectural sculpture (suggested by those of Gustavo Godoy and Tobias Putrih/MOS). Or add to a collaborative 3D-drawing made of flagging tape like that used in Megan Geckler’s café installation. And, because it’s Super Sunday, admission to the galleries is free for everyone all day long; the galleries are open from 11 AM to 6 PM.
