Lakeside at MAM: Your New Summer Hangout

Thursday–Sunday, June 17–September 5

Come to the Museum’s east lawn for Lakeside at MAM. Grab a seat, find a table, or bring your own picnic blanket—and relax with family and friends outdoors throughout the summer. Visitors of all ages are invited to create art, catch live programming, and enjoy the sights in this space where the Museum hugs Lake Michigan. Weather permitting, Lakeside at MAM will be open with free admission during Museum hours.

Check back for new details throughout the summer, and follow our social media channels for updates. Drop-in art making and scheduled programming will take a break Aug 7–8.

Art Making

Join in kids’ art activities outdoors! Drop by the Kohl’s Art Studio tents between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., weather permitting. Painting, drawing, and more will be free to enjoy.

Upcoming Events

Connect in person with music, movement, and so much more. Check back for more information throughout the summer; new dates and times are added regularly.
