July 7, 2016 – Chia Pets | Music on the front steps
Chia seeds have enjoyed popularity as an American object of kitsch since the 1980s, but the seed that started the modern day craze is so much more than a kitchen counter sprout! Chia plants are native to this region and were a staple food and medicine for many native people for at least hundreds of years. Have fun making your own Chia Pet to take home, learn ways you can cook with chia seeds, and more! Enjoy music outside on the Museum steps. (Hands-on Activity from 6 – 8:30 pm; Music from 6:00 – 9:00 pm) 

August 4, 2016 – Changing America | Music on the front steps
