Upcoming April Events

Parents’ Night Out. All Access. Arts in April. We can hardly contain our excitement at having all three of these big events next month!

First up is Parents’ Night Out. This action-packed evening is slated for Friday, February 13 from 5:30 – 9:30 pm. But don’t worry–there’s nothing scary about it. Instead we’ll be exploring the world of abstract art by looking at a few famous examples and then creating some of our own. If you think your little Kandinsky would enjoy a night at the museum be sure to register today! Parents’ Night Out is for children ages 4-12. It is $20 for the first child and $15 for each additional child. Registration includes dinner, snack, and a night full of fun. Click here to register

All Access is Friday, April 20 from 5:30 – 8:30 and is open to all special needs families. It is a time to explore the Discovery Center without the hustle and bustle of a visit during our traditional hours. This All Access will be focused on Earth Day. We’ll have some Earth-inspired art along with tips and tricks for being better stewards of natural resources. There is no fee to attend an All Access night, but we do request RSVPs to ensure we’ll have enough refreshments and supplies on hand. To RSVP for the April 20 All Access Night, click here.

Last up is the brand new event, Arts in April: A Day with the Laureates. This free day will put Murfreesboro’s inaugural class of Artist Laureates front and center as they share their processes and works with you. You’ll spend time learning about photography from Jessica Nelson, poetry from Kory Wells, and painting from Ginny Togrye. Each artist will share the history of their craft and spend time helping you to master it. Arts in April will also be the day we unveil our new We Are Tennessee mural that will feature depictions of what it means to be a Tennessean. Over 100 artists submitted pieces for this project and we are so excited to see the final product. Arts in April is a project funded by the Tennessee Arts Commission’s Arts Build Communities Program and made possible through a collaboration with Cultural Arts Murfreesboro.
