The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) welcomes families and intergenerational audiences to the museum for its Free Family Day on Sunday, July 16, 2017.

While the museum is always free for visitors 18 and younger, on Free Family Day, it is also free for up to two adults accompanying each visitor 18 and younger. Tickets are available on-site only on July 16, and cannot be purchased in advance.

Free Family Day features Brazilian audiovisual artists O Grivo as they create an aural puzzle with surprising materials, including springs, cans, metal leafs, wooden boxes, and more. The artists then improvise with these musical machines, using electronic filters and effects to produce a soundscape like nothing you’ve ever heard before.

SFMOMA’s Free Family Day
Sunday, July 16, 2017 | 9 am to 5 pm (Galleries open at 10 am)
SFMOMA, 151 Third St., SF
FREE for up to two adults accompanying each visitor under 18. Tickets are available on-site only on July 16th.

Stick around to hear American artist Camille Norment performing with her glass armonica, a rare eighteenth-century instrument that creates ethereal music from glass and water.

Be sure to check out Amor Muñoz’s endurance drawing performance Rhythmic Manufacture (2015/2017), set to the steady rhythm of a metronome, as well as O Grivo’s Cantilena (2017) and Norment’s Lull (2016), all on view as a part of the Soundtracks exhibition on Floor 7.
