Portuguese is a language shared by 265 million people on every continent.

This year, the Consulate General of Portugal, in partnership with Camões, I.P., and The Newark Museum of Art celebrates this language with educator and storyteller Bru Junça in this family-friendly event. The event is in Portuguese.

Come to the Museum before the event to visit our family-friendly exhibition Animal Kingdom! and to make flower paintings inspired by Georgia O’Keefe, during our Family Drop-In (1-4pm).
