March 17, 2018

11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Explore light in Nature!

Drop-in on Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 11 AM -1 PM for Family Day!  Family Day is an opportunity for families to participate in hands-on STEM + Creativity experiences that explore various themes in the light exhibition.

Free and open to the public. Supplies are provided while they last.


We will be joined by Astronomers from the Omaha Astronomical Society with telescopes to safely view the sun (weather-permitting).

Austen Hill, a naturalist from the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resource District will be on-site with insects and feathered friends that are impacted by light.

Jellyfish are a wonder of bioluminescence. As part of KANEKO’s upcoming exhibition, REALITY, a hands-on activity of constructing jellyfish from plastic bags will be exploring human consumption of plastic while creating something beautiful that will become part of a larger installation within the Museum of Alternative History, which will be housed within the REALITY exhibition. Help us build a smack of jellyfish!

KIDSpace at the K-UNO Library will also have books, film and hands-on building tools for little humans + their big humans.

Grab a bite!

In addition to Family Day activities, local food trucks will be joining us from 11 AM – 2 PM for lunch. Jonny Riccos, Big Green Q, Gyro Shack and Dire Lion will be located in the gravel lot on 11th street, just south of KANEKO. There will be tables and chairs set up for families to sit and enjoy. Please note that we do not allow any food or drink inside the gallery.
