Family Fun Day Saturday, July 27 from 11am to 3pm. This summer-themed day is packed with fun art-making activities, artist demonstrations, face painting, balloon twisting, continuous entertainment on stage, and docents in the galleries. Children of all ages can create art at one of the many art-making stations inspired by current exhibitions Higher Ground: A Century of the Visual Arts in East Tennessee, and Currents: Recent Art from East Tennessee and Beyond. Additionally Thornton Dial: Thoughts on Paper will get young artists thinking about animal and large-scale painting. Entertainment for Family Fun Day includes live music by the Johnson Swingtet. Led by Eugene Johnson, this combo draws its inspiration from the great jazz artists of the 1930s through the 1950s. Snacks will be available for purchase.
Family Fun Day is FREE thanks to the generous sponsorship of Laura and Jason Bales.
