Join us every Second Saturday for THRIVE @ MoAD Community Day with free admission to all our exhibitions. Across the globe, museums are increasingly being recognized as having an important role to play in promoting personal and social well-being in partnership with the health care industry. Studies have shown that engagement with art and culture aid in brain function, processing trauma, and reducing the stigma of mental illness.
WALK-IN TICKETS ARE WELCOME AND AVAILABLE.
From 12-2pm, join us for a family art activity led by teaching artist Nicole Dixon in the MoAD lobby.
In the Salon from 2-3:30pm, join us for an interactive performance with Carl Winters, the Kalimba King. He will demonstrate playing jazz, blues, pop, rhythm & blues, and gospel on 13 kalimbas (African thumb pianos), along with a discussion of how the kalimba is used in African cultures.
Museum of the African Diaspora and Kaiser Permanente are committed to increasing access to the positive health outcomes of arts engagement and providing resources on overall well-being for our community.
This program is made possible by the generous support of Kaiser Permanente and the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District.
