Family Day at SUMA

Families and friends in the community are invited to join SUMA online for special virtual activities. In partnership with artsFUSION, each Family Day has a hands-on art activity that participants can do safely at home, following along through a Facebook Watch Party.

Currently, Family Day is offered virtually through SUMA's Facebook page, Vimeo, or the SUMA at Home website. You can visit SUMA to view art for inspiration and then follow along with the art activity at home.

Wonder Wednesdays

Third Wednesdays, 2-4 p.m.

Beverley Taylor Sorenson Classroom

Wonder Wednesday at SUMA

Drop-in for an adventure and fun make-and-take activities for K-5 students! Wonder Wednesdays involves several community partners, so elementary students always have a place to go during early-outs in Iron County. 

Children accompanied by an adult can drop by anytime between 2-4 p.m. for make-and-take activities or self-guided programming at any of the following organizations: the Frontier Homestead State Park (first Wednesday), the Cedar City Library (second Wednesday), and the SUU STEM Center (fourth Wednesday). On the third Wednesdays, SUMA will celebrate an artist in the museum with an art activity and information about each artist.

Earn an extra prize by attending Wonder Wednesday at each location at least once this fall! Get your passport at any Wonder Wednesday event. Collect a stamp at each location and then turn it in at SUMA to collect your prize!
