Grandparents looking to spend some time out on the town with their grandchildren can participate in the Detroit Institute of Arts’ Grandparents Day program from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 14.
From 11 a.m. to noon, visitors can watch puppet performances of “Little Red Riding Hood.” For those interested in making their own art, there will be an opportunity to create a folk art toy at a drop-in workshop. Remember the day by taking a complimentary photo at the picture station.
Grandchildren are admitted free to the museum with an adult general admission or DIA membership. Admission and registration will take place in the Detroit Film Theatre Lobby. Free valet parking is available in the Loggia Circle off John R Street.
