Celebrate with us on Saturday, June 22 as we host an afternoon of festivities along with free ice cream treats from Brooklyn’s own Van Leeuwen ice cream company (vegan options available!). The afternoon will feature making and reading room activities, gallery tours, and more special events for the whole family.

Drop in for an exploration of the Transformation Mask, a highlight from the exhibition The Story Box: Franz Boas, George Hunt and the Making of Anthropology. Through questions and close looking, we will learn about the Transformation Mask and uncover how objects and ceremony may allow us to connect our past and present.
