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.
Come experience CanStruction! Canstruction Southwest Virginia is an annual event intent on raising awareness of issues related to hunger in the region and on collecting canned food for those confronting a real struggle to find enough food on a day to day basis! Canstruction allows teams to create amazing sculptures made entirely out of canned food! After being on display for one week, all of the cans that were part of the sculptures are donated to Feeding America Southwest Virginia (http://www.faswva.org/).
Art Venture activities will be creating ornaments for the City of Roanoke Holiday Tree!
