Philbrook’s Second Saturdays Are Free. Family. Fun. Days

FOOD ON THE MOVE: Taylor Hanson and his wife Natalie with Food on the Move partnered with Philbrook’s Second Saturday in November, which focused on giving and gratitude here at home.

Philbrook is a great place to relax and connect as a family. Saturdays at Philbrook’s main location are always fun days to be creative and discover new ideas together in a relaxing environment.
Visit Philbrook on the second Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. for free family-friendly art-making, tours, and activities for kids of all ages in the museum and in the gardens. Free museum admission is offered at both locations.
For its November Second Saturday’s Big Idea, “Giving and Gratitude Here at Home,” Philbrook partnered with Food On The Move, Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to explore the impacts of hunger in our community. Participants learned about hunger in Tulsa. They heard about Food on the Move, which is focused on combating food instability in Tulsa, from Taylor Hanson, life-long Tulsan who spearheaded the initiative in 2014; he is also a member of the pop-rock trio, HANSON, as well as a songwriter, producer and entrepreneur. They harvested veggies in the Edible Teaching Garden, learned how they could get involved, and created artwork that explored gratitude and giving.
Other activities included a scavenger hunt, story time with the Tulsa City County Library and tours of the garden, Zink Rotunda, the Villa and galleries in the museum.
Philbrook’s Second Saturday in December will be Dec. 14. Each Second Saturday is designed to explore one “Big Idea.” December’s Big Idea is “Lit from Within.” Experience the wonder of our special exhibition with Anila Quayyum Agha and experiment with light, shadow and play in artmaking activities, stories and hands-on fun. Bring out the inner artist in each member of the family. Visit for details.
