Families are invited to art workshops, games, performances, and more during this afternoon of fun presented jointly by Rienzi and Bayou Bend. Complimentary transportation between the two house museums is provided. Refreshments are served​.

At Bayou Bend, learn about architecture. See how buildings and other structures form the foundation of American style. Art activities and historical interpreters reveal global influences on American tastes, and performances salute innovations that made constructing homes and buildings possible.

In celebration of Rienzi’s 20th anniversary, go behind the scenes to view rarely visited rooms, hidden cabinets, and even record albums. Create your own cover art inspired by the vintage LP collection; enjoy a performance by Kataoka Violin School; and work with Stages Theatre playwrights on monologues inspired by the art at Rienzi.

This event is free! Drop in to participate. Last admission is at 4:30 p.m.
