Family Festivals are Back at the Kimbell

FAMILY FESTIVALS ARE BACK, MARKING THE FIRST MAJOR FAMILY EVENT AT THE KIMBELL IN OVER TWO YEARS

Free exhibition admission, local performances and studio activities offered at the Kimbell April 24 and July 17

The Kimbell Art Museum announces the return of one of its most beloved programs, Family Festivals / Fiestas de las Familias. During festival days, families and art lovers of all ages may enjoy free programming, including performances, art-making activities and gallery explorations that celebrate art and community.

“We are thrilled to resume Family Festivals, which are always a major highlight on our programming calendar. As the Kimbell approaches its 50th anniversary this October, we look forward to showcasing the many different ways that families may explore, create and connect with art in the museum,” says Connie Hatchette Barganier, head of education at the Kimbell.

Two Family Festivals are slated for the coming months—Amazing Art from Across Africa / Arte increíble alrededor de Africa on Sunday, April 24, from noon to 5 p.m., and Summer Art Party with Ice Cream Sunday / Fiesta de verano de arte con helado el domingo on Sunday, July 17, from noon to 5 p.m. Offered in conjunction with the special exhibition The Language of Beauty in African Art, the first Family Festival of 2022 will immerse visitors in vibrant cultural traditions and diverse forms of expression from across Africa with featured performances by Bandan Koro African Drum and Dance and Houston-based storyteller Toni Simmons, art-making activities, gallery explorations and more! Admission to The Language of Beauty in African Art is free for festival participants on April 24.

The April 24 Family Festival will also mark the official reopening of Studio A in the Renzo Piano Pavilion. Studio A, the Kimbell’s sensory-friendly drop-in play space for children (ages 5 and younger) and their adult companions, invites visitors to imagine their own adventure. This “please touch” room encourages families to experience art and community from an early age. Studio A is always free and open during regular museum hours (please note that the Piano Pavilion will be closed August 1–September 17, 2022).
