Family Circle

Family Circle fosters long-term appreciation of the visual arts for families and children while supporting the MFAH. Benefiting a range of important education initiatives, the group’s programs are led by the learning and interpretation department. The Museum hosts three events per year for Family Circle members, engaging patrons with the MFAH collections and exhibitions. Family Circle members enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes tours that give children a personalized and interactive introduction to the world of art, and they participate in other fun programs that encourage lifelong interest in the visual arts.

Past program highlights include:

  • A special afternoon with the exhibition Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910–1950, a landmark presentation of modern Mexican art
  • Exclusive evening at the Museum to learn about fashion design as an artistic medium and explore the exhibition The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta
  • Family program focused on the monumental exhibition Peacock in the Desert: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur, India, exploring treasures rarely seen outside of the royal palace
