 Family Day at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art
Live music, arts activities and more planned for Sunday, April 13
What if we threw a party ... and everyone came? 
Everyone is invited to Free Family Day at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art on Sunday, April 13. Art activities and performances are planned from 12 to 5 p.m.  that day. The free program is organized around the special exhibition, "Come On Down" by Lisa Hoke and will take place throughout the Museum at 415 Couch Drive in downtown Oklahoma City. Free admission and all activities for the day are sponsored by SONIC, America's Drive-In.
"Thanks to SONIC, America's Drive-In, everyone in the community has the opportunity to enjoy the Museum for free," said Amanda Harmer, OKCMOA Community Outreach Coordinator.  "We encourage everyone to come to the Museum to experience Lisa Hoke's installation 'Come On Down' and all we will have going on that day."
"Come on Down" is a colorful, monumental wall frieze, measuring fifteen feet high and spanning more than 150 feet. The installation incorporates an assortment of everyday materials-from recycled paper and product packaging to plastic cups-and confronts the notion of mass production in America.
The event will feature live entertainment including Oklahoma's own Sugar Free All Stars and Spaghetti Eddie! and Michael King the Magician. Ongoing throughout the afternoon will be a variety of hands-on art activities inspired by Lisa Hoke's exhibition and the photography exhibitions featuring Brett Weston's and Ansel Adams' work. Attendees will have the opportunity to make recycled art wristbands and pinwheels, sun prints, black and white landscapes, and much more.  Families can enjoy guided tours of the Museum, face painting and story times presented by the Metropolitan Library System.
Activities are appropriate for all ages, and no reservations are required. For a full schedule and details about Family Day, visit
