The Figge Art Museum will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its opening and the 90th year of its predecessor, the Davenport Art Museum, with free activities today.
Activities begin at 10 a.m. with drawing in the galleries, studio art-making activities and birthday party fun — such as party hats, making birthday cards and enjoying birthday treats.
Guests can also watch “The Show that Shook the World” in the John Deere Auditorium at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
In the evening, guests can play giant checkers, bag toss, make enormous bubbles and create a masterpiece with spin art on the Bechtel Plaza. Food specials for $5 and a cash bar will be available after 5 p.m., with birthday cake being served at 6.
Entertainment is provided by the QC Rock Academy at 6:30 p.m., Identity Crisis at 7:30 p.m. and hip-hop performer NOM at 9 p.m.
Visitors also will have the opportunity to view the Muscatine River Monster, an inflatable sculpture installation and interactive character, on the southwest corner of the museum lot.
Free admission at the Figge continues through Sept. 20.
