Join us for our Spectacular Saturdays! Discover, Create, and Participate in Art Venture art-making and special activities. Visit our current exhibitions, try the gallery scavenger hunts with your family and friends to win a prize, and be on the lookout for special guest collaborations, performances, and so much more! Children can create unique crafts to take home. Each Saturday introduces a brand new selection of art-making activities connected to one of the current museum exhibitions or a local event! These projects will be available throughout the week inside our Art Venture space, open from 10am - 5pm Tuesday - Saturday on the first floor of the museum.

Southwest Virginia Ballet will perform at 11:00am, and Roanoke Chamber Brass will perform at 1:00pm. This Spectacular Saturday is proudly sponsored by Kroger.
