Martin Museum of Art Family Day

Saturday, September 29, 10 am- 4pm
Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center

Life, Work & Legacy will open on September 29th with a fun-filled day of activities for the entire family. Our opening event will be from 10 am to 4 pm with refreshments and food for purchase. The Martin Museum is partnering with several cultural organizations to bring the legacy of Audubon to life through education. Visitors will be able to meet birds from Cameron Park Zoo from 12 pm to 2 pm, make bird-feeders and binoculars from upcycled materials while learning about birds from the local chapter of the Audubon Society, read books related to nature and birds in a pop-up library hosted by Waco Public Library, work with Baylor Photo Lab to create an Audubon-themed photogram, create and color a “flying” bird craft with the Mayborn Museum, and much more! Tours of the exhibition will be held periodically throughout the day. All activities and crafts are free and open to the public, and, as always, admission to the Museum is free.


Exhibitions complement the courses of art history and studio art taught within the Department of Art. Temporary and traveling art exhibitions featuring nationally and internationally recognized artists are presented throughout the year.
