MuseumLab Program

February 6, 2020

This annual event is back for another night of snark! This time, we're taking the fun to MuseumLab, the newly renovated building across from the Children's Museum.

Follow your heart and join us for an evening of food, drink and amore. And sass. We provide the making, you decide if your valentine will be snarky or scandalous. 


  • Make a shrinky dink for yourself! Shrink your art, not your feelings.
  • Woodburn a design on a wooden keychain.
  • Grab a friend and practice blind contour portrait drawing! Also practice your long, awkward eye-contact skills. 
  • No one to give you a Valentine? Make your own with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh!
