Calm Morning: Foley Art

Calm Morning: Foley Art

Join us for sensory-friendly gallery exploration and a family workshop inspired by the accommodative screening of Singin’ in the Rain (1952). 

Calm Morning is a free program with the purchase of general admission. Museum admission for children ages 17 and under is always free.

We invite visitors to our Calm Morning program on Saturday, March 25, from 9am to 1pm, with a focus on Foley art inspired by the film Singin’ in the Rain (1952). ASL interpretation will be provided.

9–10am | Early Gallery Access
Explore the Stories of Cinema exhibition, particularly the Sound gallery, on Level 2, where sound and lighting adjustments will be made for a more sensory-friendly viewing experience.

10–11am | Family Workshop
Visit the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level for a family workshop inspired by Singin’ in the Rain (1952). This film is about a group of movie stars and filmmakers from the silent era who need to update their films to incorporate sound with the innovation of the “talkies,” also known as sound films. Families can explore Foley art, using different objects to create sounds that match up with the actions in the movie!

In addition to the Calm Morning program, we encourage visitors to attend our accommodative, open-caption screening of Singin’ in the Rain at 11am in the Ted Mann Theater. The screening is part of our weekly Family Matinees film series. A separate admission ticket is required.

The Shirley Temple Education Studio will remain open during the screening as a space for relaxation and continued art making until 1pm.
