From staff reports


Stark Museum of Art has invited the Orange African American Museum to participate in the Stark Museum of Art’s Cowboy Family day from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday, September 22.

The event will host 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 the field of bluebonnets and design your own sweet and tasty rodeo artwork at the edible craft station. Watch a classic cartoon that is set in the West in the museum’s Mini Movie Theater and then create your own pop up western landscape in the hands-on crafts area. Go on a scavenger hunt through the Museum and win a western photo frame to make and use at home.

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 11 a.m., Noon and 1 p.m. with gift basket prizes ranging in value from $10 to $100 (must be present to win).

The Stark Museum of Art is located at 712 Green Ave. in Orange. Admission is free.
