Kids Club Peter & the Wolf Family Affair

Kids Club Peter & the Wolf Family Affair

The Guggenheim’s annual Peter & the Wolf artist-led workshop has become a programmatic highlight for all Kids Club families. Praised by the New York Times, this family-friendly holiday event combines Sergei Prokofiev’s charming children’s classic with the visual and performing arts to present it as it has never been seen before. Members begin with a private behind-the-scenes exploration with the contemporary artist who designed the set. Families then learn about the artist’s unique process and work with him or her to create their own one-of-a-kind masterpiece! Special priority seating is reserved for Kids Club members and their guests for the performance in the Peter B. Lewis Theater.
