Fall Family Day with Rienzi

Sunday, November 15, 2020

Enjoy Fall Family Day with Rienzi—online, on-site, or both!

Virtual activities focus on the exhibition Hats Off: Halston Hats from the Masterson Collection. Get the inside story on Halston, hear a tale about a magic hat shop, and design your very own hat. To explore the exhibition in person, plan a visit to Rienzi.

• “My Uncle Halston”
Lesley Frowick, Halston’s niece, talks about Halston’s rise as a fashion designer and his life as a family man.

• Storytime at Rienzi
Gather around as Stephanie Niemeyer, manager of learning and interpretation, reads The Magic Hat Shop, from Rienzi’s library.

• Design Your Own Hat!
Get creative with this special drawing activity—download the PDF and let the exhibition inspire you to come up with your own hat designs.

► Admission
All of the Family Day activities are online and free of charge.
Rienzi is open regular hours, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, with your timed ticket.
