Join 98.7 WMZQ on Saturday, March 24th for SAAM Family Day from 11:30a-3:00p at Smithsonian American Art Museum!
Join SAAM and the National Cherry Blossom Festival for a celebration of Japanese culture! A taiko drumming performance kicks off the day, followed by Japanese music and dance performances, face painting, and cherry-blossom themed crafts. Make your own tatebanko (a Japanese paper diorama) with our friends from the Smithsonian’s Freer|Sackler Asian art museums. Take a scavenger hunt to find spring themed artworks, and more!
The event takes place in the Museum’s beautiful, glass covered Kogod Courtyard. Check out the museum store for great DC and Cherry Blossom related products and the Courtyard Café for special Cherry Blossom treats.
Plus, meet the 2018 Official Festival Artist, Maggie O’Neill and join her for a hands-on workshop in the Luce Foundation Center. Workshop registration required.
This program is a partnership between the National Cherry Blossom Festival and Smithsonian American Art Museum.
