    Children can get their artistic juices flowing with the “Bring the Cool” family festival this weekend at the Brooklyn Museum.

    The day-long event includes lots of opportunities for children to immerse themselves in art making with a photo station, art fort and a time capsule. There are also hidden tokens in the galleries and children can journey along on the hunt to find them all.

    The day is a collaboration with P.S.1 Elementary School and Cool Culture, a program which provides free access to 90 cultural institutions throughout the city for eligible families. Volunteers fluent in Spanish, Cantonese and Mandarin will be on hand during the festival.
