Celebrate Summer with the Knoxville Museum of Art at Family Fun Day

The Knoxville Museum of Art invites children and parents to celebrate summer at Family Fun Day on Saturday, June 13 from 11am to 3pm. All events at Family Fun Day are free thanks to the generous sponsorship of First Tennessee and Laura and Jason Bales.

Children of all ages have the opportunity to create art at one of the many art-making stations inspired by current exhibitions. Families can tap their feet to the music of Jeff Barbra and Sarah Pirkle, participate in gallery talks given by docent guides, and have the kids' faces painted, all for free.

Artists Suzanne Devan, Holly Errigo, and Jessie Van der Laan will demonstrate painting, 3D works, and bookmaking respectively.

Spotlight Performance Center Company will perform E.B. White's Charlotte's Web in the KMA auditorium at noon and 2pm. Knoxville and Oak Ridge actors range from nine to 14 years old.

Refreshments from Dave's Dog House will be for sale.
