OREM — Utah Valley University’s Woodbury Art Museum will host a free Family Day Saturday, June 21, in celebration of the summer solstice.

The museum staff has planned a day that will combine art and science, including holding origami frog races and crafting sun catchers from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., followed by a physics demonstration, drum circle, and summer yoga from 3 to 5 p.m.

“Family days are a chance for children to explore the art we have on display,” said Melissa Hempel, director and curator of the museum. “In a setting where we usually remind them to keep their hands to themselves, our family activities encourage tactile and aesthetic experiences that draw from the current exhibition.”

The Woodbury Art Museum collects, preserves, and exhibits art and related materials, focusing on modern and contemporary artistic styles.

The museum is located in the southeast corner of the University Mall, 575 W. University Parkway, in Orem. For more information, visit www.uvu.edu/museum.
