    Art Splash at the Philadelphia Museum of Art through Sunday

    This week’s Art Splash theme is Mythological Mischief. Young art appreciators will discover the” tricky creatures, sneaky beasts, and devious gods and goddesses” that fill the galleries. Families can create their own art in the Splash Studio, go on a Baby Bird Playdate, play gallery games, and embark on family, and even toddler-friendly, tours.
