Carnegie Museum of Art

CATurday is a day of feline-themed family fun at Carnegie Museum of Art!

We're celebrating the launch of Art Cat's Sketchbook with art activities, and a little help from Humane Animal Rescue. Bring a drawing of your favorite cat for $2 off admission and to contribute to our community cat gallery.

We'll have drawing activities right from Art Cat's Sketchbook, a new activity book of creative fun for looking at, and making art. Meet Art Cat's designer Dave Klug, and join him for drawing activities for kids and adults alike. Explore the collection on animal tours. Get a cattoo, design your cat ears, and meet adoptable kitties all day long. Join in a family-friendly KID CITY dance party with DJ Kelly Mom, and enjoy live music from the Center for Young Musicians. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to meet the REAL Art Cat!

CMOA’s Summer Break Series

Our Third Thursday series for the 18+ crowd is taking a break until September, but that doesn’t mean CMOA isn’t bringing the fun this summer! Join us on June 10 and July 22 for two family-friendly Summer Breaks featuring art, interactive activities, special tours, outdoor music, food, beat-the-heat beverages, and more! In addition to our CATurday Summer Break, we’re celebrating the opening of 20/20: The Studio Museum in Harlem and Carnegie Museum of Art with a summer afternoon of conversation, art-making, reflection, and music.
