NBC 5 and the Kimbell Art Museum would like to invite you to Kimbell Fest: France on Saturday, June 18, from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth.
This free festival will kick off with a “Tour de France” from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., presented in partnership with Fort Worth Bike Sharing. Riders are encouraged to dress their bikes and themselves in their best French attire and meet at the Kimbell’s Darnell Street parking lot to enjoy a bicycle tour of the Museum’s Cultural District before reaching the “finish line” on the Museum’s lawn.
Daytime activities include face painting, art making, traditional dancers and musicians, historic demonstrations, storytelling, and a “selfie” photo booth. Evening activities include outdoor rock music performances, provided in partnership with KXT 91.7 FM, as well as French-inspired musical presentations.
Kimbell Fest: France is inspired by the Kimbell Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition, The Brothers Le Nain: Painters of Seventeenth-Century France. The Brothers Le Nain Exhibit is on view May 22 – September 11.
