This Friday, you can participate in a project called “25 Million Stitches” by making a few stitches of your own to support global refugees. No sewing experience required! 

This large-scale community art installation began in California to raise awareness of the global refugee crisis. The goal: one stitch for each of the world’s 25 million-plus refugees.

Drinks (cash bar) and snacks will be served with music in the Stuart Clark Garden of Contemplation. Families can try the Empathy Game or join an activity where children imagine themselves as human rights superheroes.

Explore the Museum’s incredible architecture and exhibits at your leisure, ascending on illuminated alabaster ramps.

Share your night at the Museum by tagging us on Instagram @cmhr_mcdp or use #FridayNightRights #AtCMHR for a chance to be featured on our feed and in our stories.

Please note that this program is subject to change or cancellation.
