Wisconsin Parent

Monumental Square Art Festival, Racine Wisconsin (May 31-June 1)

May 09, 2014 02:28PM, Published by Julie Henning, Categories: Adventure, Food+Dining



The Monument Square Art Festival (MSAF) in Racine, Wisconsin brings the works of 80 artists from throughout the country to Sixth and Main streets in Downtown Racine on Saturday and Sunday, May 31 and June 1. As a family-friendly event, MSAF features hands-on activities for kids to experience art and music. New for 2014 is the "Instrument Petting Zoo" where kids can interact with various musical instruments. Racine Symphony Orchestra members will be on hand to give demonstrations. The kids can also experience face painting, the Racine Art Museum's RAM on the Road art projects, chalk drawing, a community canvas project, and a special Raku ceramics demonstration.

The festival will also be a collection spot for Lonely Instruments Need Kids, an initiative that accepts used musical instruments for donation to local music programs. MSAF includes entertainment from local student music ensembles and a fine arts silent auction benefiting the Racine Arts Council school groups, food and fun.

Best of all—it's free. Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. For more information, including artists and the entertainment schedule, visit www.monumentsquareartfest.com
