Entertainment and activities for all ages are promised as The Westmoreland Museum of American Art hosts a free Family Day 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Nov. 25.

Visitors can participate in a museum scavenger hunt, complete creative art projects and enjoy special performances by Stage Right! Sensations and actor Tim Hartman as Joe Magarac, Man of Steel.

The mythical Hungarian steelworker has achieved legendary status as a folk hero dedicated to the production of steel.

“The Westmoreland is looking forward to having the community join us for our fall Family Day,” says Joan McGarry, director of education and visitor engagement, in a release.

“We are excited to be collaborating with the Westmoreland Library Network, who will be presenting three projects related to literary arts during the event,” she says.

The museum sponsors Family Day twice a year, spring and fall. The event is presented in partnership with the Westmoreland Library Network and is sponsored by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Jack Buncher Foundation.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
