Play Day

Each year, VisArts opens up its doors for Play Day, our spring open house. This year’s open house takes place on Saturday, May 20 from 12 to 3 p.m.

At Play Day, kids and adults make art projects in more than a dozen studios throughout VisArts’ 30,000-square foot facility. Admission to VisArts’ open house is always free. One thousand people attended last year’s event.

This year, VisArts is inviting the community to come together and break the Guinness World Record for World’s Largest Cyanotype. We’ll need dozens of volunteers and lots more people on site to make it happen!

Beer and food will be available. Plan to enjoy a craft sale, kids’ games and activities, a reading by a local children’s book author, family yoga and more. We’re also welcoming Studio Two Three’s print truck, S23 To-Go, and Milk River Arts to Play Day this year.

In celebration of Play Day, Goatocado will donate 10 percent of its sales that day to the Visual Arts Center of Richmond.

Play Day is a rain or shine event. The making of the cyanotype will be postponed in the event of rain or overcast skies. Extra parking is available at Binford Middle School.
