Calm Morning: The Wizard of Oz 

Calm Morning: The Wizard of Oz 

Join us for sensory-friendly gallery exploration and a drop-in workshop inspired by the accommodative screening of The Wizard of Oz (1939).

We invite visitors to explore the art of moviemaking during our Calm Morning program on September 24, from 9am to 11am. ASL interpretation provided.

First, explore The Art of Moviemaking: The Wizard of Oz and selected galleries within  Stories of Cinema, Level 2, where sound and lighting adjustments will be made for a more sensory-friendly viewing experience. Next, visit the Shirley Temple Education Studio for a drop-in production design activity. Share what your “somewhere over the rainbow” would be by creating your own unique mixed media illustration. Mixed media includes using various materials such as fabric, paper, watercolor, and colored pencils.

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

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