    The event is made possible by the DADvocacy Consulting Group and AVAM. The Museum’s ground-breaking Parenting: An Art without a Manual exhibition, which runs through Sept. 1, focuses on “what might be humanity’s most essential performance art — the intuitive, transformative, and complex art of parenting. AVAM’s exhibition showcases works by 36 artists, created out of every conceivable medium, to best express their own personal life experience of parenting and being parented — be it good, bad, horrific, and/or sublime, alongside revelations from the latest scientific research, globally sourced wisdoms, and fun.”
