McClung Museum Offers Birds in Art Free Family Activity Day June 22

The McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture will offer a free activity day for families on Saturday, June 22, to showcase the current temporary exhibition Birds in Art.

The 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. event is free and open to the public. The exhibit, on display until August 18, features paintings, sculptures, and graphics of birds from artists around the world.

The family activity day will include brief tours of the gallery, a bird feeder craft, a gallery scavenger hunt, and a discussion of common birds children can identify in their backyards and around East Tennessee. Families also will receive a small booklet they can take home to identify birds in the area. All supplies for the craft and the booklet will be provided.

The museum is located at 1327 Circle Park Drive. It is open 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. Admission is free. Free parking is available in front of the museum on Circle Park Drive.
