Family Fun Day is planned for Sept. 8 at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley.

The free event from noon to 5 p.m. will offer all-ages arts and crafts activities including silk marbling, necklace making, acrylic pouring, papier mache murals, rock painting and more. Children also will be able to participate in various games.

Artists including painter Jaime Cooper and potter Bob Zabrowski will demonstrate and sell their work on the museum lawn. Robert Roush will provide live acoustic music.

Snack foods will be available.

Inside the museum, guests may purchase tickets for a basket raffle and view the current exhibition, “Doreen Currie: Plein-Air Paradigm,” with more than 60 landscape oil paintings by the Latrobe artist.

“This Family Fun Day is our way of saying thanks to the community for supporting us throughout the year,” says site coordinator Kristin Miller.

The museum is located at 1 Boucher Lane and Route 711 South in Ligonier Township.

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.
