Take a break from the Texas heat and join us for The 2013 Modern Kids - Summer Flicks Series! Share the art of the screen with your children through these  delightful and innovative films. The bonus for seeing these films at the Modern is the opportunity to visit the galleries before or after and experience the wonder of the art as stories unfold and ideas form in paintings, sculptures, installations and videos from the permanent collection.

Make a full day of creative and thoughtful activities at the Modern. Self guided gallery projects, and fun post-screening conversations make the perfect partner to the films in the Summer Flicks Series.
