Families are sure to enjoy two full days of art, music, storytelling, and dancing in this year’s family art festival, while celebrating the Beauty and Belief: Crossing Bridges with the Arts of Islamic Culture exhibition Friday and Saturday June 15-16, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the BYU Museum of Art in Provo, UT.
“It’s an opportunity for families from the community to get together and have fun,” said Krisanne Hastings, BYU Museum of Art education coordinator.
The festival will be open-house style with many different workshops available throughout the day. Guests will move from station to station as they participate in the many available activities and are free to come and go as they like.
Guests will experience Islamic culture through dance and music demonstrations, storytelling, hands-on art making, and activities in the Beauty and Belief exhibition.
“People will come and give Middle Eastern dance demonstrations,” said Hastings. “It will be a lot fun for the whole family.”
Adults and children of all ages will find activities that appeal to their interests. Pre-registration is not required for attendance, but enthusiasm and a love for learning are. The Family Art Festival is free and open to the public.
