HUNTSVILLE – If you are new to Huntsville and have not been downtown to visit the Huntsville Museum of art, or if you are a long time resident but have not been to the museum in a while, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a beautiful day surrounded by art, music and culture.
The Betsy and Peter Lowe Community Free Day at the Huntsville Museum of Art kicks off the summer season over the long Memorial Day weekend with free admission to all guests Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
The free day is in honor of Betsy and Peter Lowe for their support of HMA.
It provides an opportunity for guests and their families to view the wide range of exhibits – from captivating artworks by regional and national artists such as the mystical and symbolic fraternal objects in “Mystery and Benevolence: Masonic and Odd Fellows Folk Art” from the American Folk Art Museum; the interactive botanical projections in “Encounters: Courtney Egan”; and “Looking at the Collection: African American Art and Artists.”
“If you haven’t had the fantastic opportunity to visit the Museum, then May 28 is a must,” said HMA Executive Director Christopher Madkour. “The museum is Big Spring Park’s ‘Jewel in the Crown’ featuring world-renowned exhibitions right here in Huntsville.”
In addition to viewing the art exhibitions, guests can enjoy music with a 2 p.m. performance from the Prevailing Winds flute ensemble.
Museum docents will be available to answer questions and chat with guests about the artwork on display.
