Join the Kimbell Art Museum for a FREE festival for all ages, “Kimbell Fest: Casanova,” on Saturday, October 14, from 5 to 10 p.m., with an exciting lineup of musical performances — including rock bands Wild Belle and Henry the Archer — plus spectacular surprise performances, art activities and face painting. The fourth annual event, “Kimbell Fest: Casanova” is inspired by the Museum’s special exhibition Casanova: The Seduction of Europe. Admission to the exhibition is free during the festival.
The festival will kick off with “Casanova’s MasqueRIDE” from 4 to 5:30 p.m., presented in partnership with Fort Worth Bike Sharing. Riders are encouraged to dress their bikes and themselves in their best Don Giovanni or Marie Antoinette and meet on the north end of the Kimbell’s lawn to enjoy a spirited bicycle tour of the Museum’s Cultural District before reaching the “finishing line” on the Museum’s lawn. Discounted BCycle bike rental will be available.
Visitors will witness awe-inspiring performances and participate in activities including face painting, art making, theatrical demonstrations, and a Casanova-inspired photo booth. Evening activities include outdoor rock music performances, provided in partnership Fortress Presents. All activities, including concert admission, are FREE and open to the public. Blankets are encouraged.
