Kristin and Susie describe a fun-filled collaboration between the two museums located at the Island Gateway Plaza for Family Art Day.  There will be performances by: Bainbridge Performing Arts Theatre School Summer Camp, Kohala Hawaiian Dance Group, and the lively band Ranger and the ‘Re-Arrangers’.  Activities will include (but are not limited to) a self-guided scavenger hunt, and a book-signing and more very cool art activities with BIMA artist Pierr Morgan.

And there will be family-friendly menu items for sale at the BIMA bistro (at least as fabulously tasty as last year!)

The annual Family Art Day has included some indoor activities, such as in the BIMA auditorium
