The University of Mississippi Museum is helping families get into the Valentine’s Day spirit by hosting a “Quilting Cupids” Family Activity Day this weekend.

This drop-in event is set for 10 a.m. to noon Saturday (Feb. 13). Admission is free to all and a snack will be provided.

Families and children of all ages are invited to make fun Valentine-related projects that are inspired by the museum’s new exhibit of fine art quilts, “Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry: 40 Years of Color, Light and Motion.”

Activities include paper quilt-making, learning to sew and a gallery scavenger hunt. Museum staff also will collect donations of quilts and blankets for More than a Meal and Interfaith Compassion Ministry, both benefiting families in the Oxford-Lafayette community.

“Family Days at the UM Museum are truly a special opportunity for families to explore the museum and create hands-on art projects together,” said Emily McCauley, curator of education. “We are thrilled to introduce families to the spectacular quilts of Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry.”

The event is sponsored by the Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi and an Ignite Ole Miss crowd-funding campaign, which raised funds to support three years of free family days.

The University Museum, at the intersection of University Avenue and Fifth Street, is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. For more information on upcoming exhibitions and events, visit http://www.museum.olemiss.edu and follow the museum on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
