Last updated 9/6/2018 at Noon
Mosey on over to downtown Orange for a day of fall fun at the Stark Museum of Art's Cowboy FAMILY DAY on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saddle up, there will be a stampede of activities throughout the Museum, in the courtyard, and in the Walter G. Riedel III Education Center. Round up your family, friends, and neighbors to enjoy a full day of FREE fun, art and edible crafts, cartoons, live horses, outdoor games, face painting, coloring activities, story time, gallery scavenger hunt, photo ops, and more!
Visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to explore the special exhibition, Portraits from Cowboys of Color: Photographs by Don Russell and Cowboy Legends and Life. Take a selfie in our field of bluebonnets and design your own sweet and tasty rodeo artwork at our edible craft station! Watch a classic cartoon that is set in the West in our Mini Movie Theater and then create your own pop up western landscape in our hands-on crafts area. Go on a scavenger hunt through the Museum and win a western photo frame to make and use at home!
Don't get too tuckered out before heading to our courtyard outside the Walter G. Riedel III Education Center! Visit with some horses from the Orange County Sheriff Posse, and take a stick horse for a gallop on the grass.
Visitors can enter a raffle to be drawn at 11am, Noon and 1 pm with gift basket prizes ranging in value from $10 to $100 (must be present to win).
Curator of Education, Jennifer Restauri Dickinson stated, "We are looking forward to throwing the doors wide open and inviting the community to Cowboy FAMILY DAY. Staff members from across the STARK Cultural Venues will make this a memorable day to be creative, laugh and enjoy your family and friends in the Stark Museum of Art. From a mini movie theater to live horses, edible art to arts &crafts, there really is something for everyone at Cowboy Family Day."
