Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 28, from 1 to 4 p.m. because the Kimbell Art Museum is hosting a traditional Japanese family festival where children can record their wishes on beautiful paper decorations during the seventh-month celebration of Tanabata.

The afternoon is full of children's films, family tours, and enchanting storytelling by Bernadette Nason. Activities are inspired by artworks on display in the Kimbell's Asian collection. Films include “Peachboy” (28 min.), “The Boy Who Drew Cats” (30 min.), and “The Paper Crane” (30 min.). No need to make advance reservation, and don’t forget, the Kimbell’s permanent collection is always free to visit.

Have you tried the Buffet Restaurant the Kimbell? This is a great idea for a casual lunch. Try any combination of homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, quiche or countless desserts for a treat!
