Families offered fun at the museum

August 15, 2012 by  

The Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland is holding a family day open house on September 15 from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm. This is a free event and the first 750 school children admitted to the museum will receive a free bag of school supplies.

The theme of this year’s family day will be the current Invisible Elephant exhibit of the museum. Activities will include several art projects, entertainers, face painting, storytelling by Rick Olivio, a magic show from Luis Campaneria, caricature portraits, and balloon sculptures. The event will no doubt attract families from all over the area, including nearby Plant City.

The museum will probably be working with local printing companies to prepare for the family day. They may require banner printing and flyer printing services to publicize this fun family event. Flyers could be distributed throughout the area to advertise this upcoming event and banners could be hung around the museum to separate the various activity areas. Both services are reasonably priced and could add much to the event if used.

The exhibit that the family day is celebrating will be showing at the museum until October 13. It features the artwork of Theo Wujcik and Kirk Ke Wang and is a retelling of a parable told by six blind men. The exhibit highlights various cultures and religious beliefs. There will be a members’ reception in honor of this exhibit on September 21 from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm. Family day will no doubt raise interest in the exhibit and result in more visits for the museum.
