The University of Wyoming Art Museum will offer several family-oriented, free events to celebrate March Art Month, when promoting art and art education is observed nationally.

“Night at the Museum,” the premier event during March Art Month, is Monday, March 5, from 5-7 p.m. It will offer opportunities for families to look at and talk about contemporary art, plus try out free art-making activities. Free dinner will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Museum curators, teaching artists and volunteers will be on hand during this family-friendly event.

Family Activity Boxes provide a family-friendly way for families and caregivers with young children to explore the galleries. Families can look at and talk about art, investigate new ideas and creative processes, in addition to explore and make art. The activity boxes are full of art-making activities for families to do in the galleries during self-guided tours of the exhibitions. Ideas for take-home activities are included in each box. Family Activity Boxes will be available in the Art Museum’s galleries March through May, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
