First Sundays for Families Down by the River: Unveiling the Museum Reach
The river extension event is open to the public and will give visitors a first opportunity to visit the River Landing opening of the San Antonio Museum of Art.
SAN ANTONIO, TX.- As summer gets into full swing, the San Antonio River Foundation has announced a partnership with the San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA) for “Down by the River,” a family event that will celebrate a segment of the Museum Reach of the San Antonio River Improvements Project. The event, which is part of SAMA’s “First Sundays for Families” series, will take place on the grounds of SAMA on Sunday June 7, 2009 from 12pm to 5pm.

“Part of the San Antonio River Foundation’s mission is to bring grass-roots learning opportunities to the San Antonio community that includes art and environmental outreach through our membership program, Rio Vivo,” said Kim Abernethy, Executive Director of the San Antonio River Foundation. “It is wonderful to work with SAMA to fulfill opportunities that enrich cultural learning with families in the area.”

The river extension event is open to the public and will give visitors a first opportunity to visit the River Landing opening of the San Antonio Museum of Art. Children’s art activities led by local artists will center on water inspiration and include salt and watercolor painting; Gyotaku (Japanese fish printing); self-portraits; sketching on the banks of the river; landscape painting and collaborative sculpture using found objects. Live music by Azul will provide a festive spirit to the event.

To extend the event to San Antonio’s underserved children, the Harvey Najim Family Foundation is underwriting the cost of hosting 200 children from several community service organizations to the grounds of SAMA from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

Food and refreshments will be provided. Culligan will provide bottled water for the event. There will also be a t-shirt incentive for those who sign up for membership of both SAMA and the River Foundation’s member organization, Rio Vivo (www.riovivo.org). Admission to the June 7 event for adults is $8; children 12 and under are FREE.
