The Young Friends of the University of Virginia Art Museum are sponsoring a multi-arts family festival at the museum on Sunday, May 5 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. The event is in conjunction with the special exhibition "Treasures from the Earth: Art of Southwestern Native America" on view at the museum through June 9.

Participants will be able to discuss the various artworks in the exhibit. A hands-on workshop will provide children, youth and adults the chance to make an artwork inspired by the exhibition.

Stations will be set up for weaving, making jewelry and painting pre-fired pottery with Native American designs. The creations will reflect themes associated with the art of Southwestern Native America, such as the use of patterns and symmetrical designs as a way to connect with nature.

There will also be storytelling and traditional Native-American music. Refreshments will be provided.

The festival is free and is appropriate for adults and children above the age of 3. Parking will be available in the Culbreth Theater lot.
