El Museo del Barrio’s monthly free celebration of art, music, storytelling, food, and more takes visitors on a voyage of discovery on March 16 with “arteXplorers!,” a full day of special programs and activities dealing with exploration. The schedule includes the workshop “Manos a la Obra!,” in which kids hunt for animal images and then make their own superreal safari art; singer and storyteller Flor Bromley creating such tales as “Araña Mariposa,” based on Beatriz Concha’s Ochopatas y un cuento, and “Kitty,” based on Kevin Henkes’s Kitten’s First Full Moon; a Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert by Very Be Careful; and el Bazaar, with spring-cleaning discounts in el Café. In addition, galleries are open, featuring the temporary exhibit “Superreal: Alternative Realities in Photography and Video,” an examination of what is real, with video and photography by more than seventy artists, and “Presencia,” consisting of work from the permanent collection that deals with presence and absence.
