OKCMOA plans \"Super Saturday\" with scavenger hunt, games



Kids and art exhibits go hand in hand at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art's "Super Saturday" event, scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the museum, 415 Couch.

The current special exhibition of "The Baroque World of Fernando Botero" inspired "Super Saturday," where the whole family can enjoy:
" games,
" face painting,
" door prize drawings,
" dancing,
" music and
" stories.

Chandra Boyd, senior associate curator for education, said kids can learn about artwork and have fun at the same time.

"We're looking to complement the exhibition by providing a festival-type atmosphere for families," she said.

Boyd said kids will enjoy the gallery scavenger hunt, which asks them to look with their eyes, not their hands.

"The scavenger hunt sheet asks children different questions to get them to look at the artwork," she said. "It might be a color or the Colombian flag or some of the different animals that might be in the exhibition."

Other events include traditional Colombian games and dancing performed by students from the University of Oklahoma Colombian Student Association and a performance of Latin American folk music by marimbist Juan Alamo.

"It's going to be a lot of fun," Boyd said. "It's a great way to spend an afternoon at the museum."

Museum admission is $9 for adults, $7 for seniors and students, and free for children 5 and under. For more information, call 236-3100 or visit their site.
