ArtsWave Day brings art, music and dance to Behringer-Crawford Museum, Saturday, March 30

Stomping feet, clashing cymbals and the smell of fresh paint are not the typical sensory sounds and sights one encounters when entering Behringer-Crawford Museum. Except on ArtsWave Day.

A part of ArtsWave’s Community Campaign, the day offers music, art, dance programs for all ages and a museum-wide scavenger hunt at Behringer-Crawford Museum, all free of charge.

ArtsWave Day takes place, Saturday, March 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Activities at the museum include:

NrityArpana School of Performing Arts (provided photos)

*10:30- to 11:30 a.m.: The NrityArpana School of Performing Arts will explore 5,000

*Years of history and culture from India through performance dance and interactive workshop.

*12-2 p.m.: Be inspired by University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music students through activities that spark movement, music and imagination.

*12-1 p.m.: Get acquainted with Bach’s cello music through cellist Nat Chaitkin and Bach & Boombox, a program integrating modern musicians like Bruno Mars and AC/DC with that of classical artists to emphasize that all great music has the same roots.

From the ridiculous (BCM’s infamous two-headed calf) to the sublime (itsfascinating collections), this family-friendly museum celebrates the unique arts, heritage and culture of Northern Kentucky as part of the Ohio Valley.

Examine a mammoth fossil, take a ride through time with the beautifully restored 1892 streetcar “Kentucky,” activate the engines, lights and music of a miniature, mid-century community in the Faragher G-gauge train display and even watch a drive-in movie from the seat of a 1959 Buick Electra convertible.
