Family Fun Day at the Knoxville Museum of Art

The Knoxville Museum of Art invites children and parents to celebrate Family Fun Day on Saturday, December 13 from 11 am to 3 pm. All events and museum admission are free thanks to the generous sponsorship of Regal Entertainment Group and Anderson News.

Family Fun Day is packed with art activities, artist demonstrations, continuous entertainment on stage, face painting, balloon twisting, docent tours, and fantastic art-making activities inspired by the museum's current exhibitions and the holiday season.

Entertainment is provided by the music duo of Jeff Barbra & Sarah Pirkle. Center stage also hosts Einstein, the 19-year old Congo African parrot from the Knoxville Zoo.

Artist Harriet Schneider, Roane State Community College instructor Bryan Wilkerson, and others will be on hand for demonstrations and a Gilliland Farm draft horse will be outside turning the antique ice cream churns.

Refreshments, popcorn, and food will be available for sale.
