On selected days, the DMA will be open early for children with autism and their families to enjoy art together in a fun environment. Participants can enjoy staff-led gallery experiences and art-making activities in the studio. Families may enjoy an interactive performance with a music therapist, relax in our sensory room facilitated by occupational therapy students from Texas Woman’s University, and, if for kids over age 12, we have a gallery tour just for them—all before public hours.
Families will have the opportunity to explore the interactives in the Center for Creative Connections during this special private event and are also invited to stay when the Museum opens at 11:00 a.m. to enjoy additional family programming.
E-mail access@DMA.org to be placed on our Autism Awareness Family Celebration email list, or if you have questions about the content of the event or need more information about what to expect.
