We're loving the seemingly city-wide celebration of Jeff Koons, and wrote earlier this summer about the large-scale organic installation of Split-Rocker at Rockefeller Center. The Whitney Museum of American Art, home to Jeff Koons: A Retrospective through October 19, 2014, will host a variety of events and activities this September to engage and educate children and families about the iconic artist.

"Gallery Experiments" on September 13 and 20, 2014 from 11:30-2:30pm includes pop-up activity stations throughout the exhibit for discussion and exploration.

Jeff Koons Family Day is September 27, 2014 from 9am-1pm with art-making activities and hands-on gallery stations. What little ones don't want to get up close and personal to a museum exhibit?

Can't make it to one of the events? Visit the museum on your own time and download the Jeff Koons: Kids Activity Guide, full of thought-provoking questions geared towards kids with space for sketching and reflecting.

The Whitney Museum of American Art is located at 945 Madison Avenue in New York City. Hours: 11am-6pm Wednesday-Monday; closed Tuesday. General admission: $20, children under 18 are always free!
