Saturday, June 7th was the World Chess Hall of Fame’s last Family Day of the summer. Visitors created masks inspired by the costumed chess pieces in Marcel Dzama: The End Game and picture frames to honor legendary photojournalist Harry Benson’s work in Bobby Fischer: Icon Among Icons, Photographs by Harry Benson CBE.

Our July event was the last Family Day of the summer and for our current exhibitions—which close August 12th. We’ll be taking a couple months off, as kids and parents gear up for back-to-school season. Meanwhile, we’ll be installing two fantastic new exhibitions and planning more fun family events related to our new shows, which will resume in the fall.

Stay tuned to the WCHOF website for more information on future Family Days and exhibitions. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
