Matsuri: A Samurai Celebration

Saturday, June 21 at the Kimbell Art Museum

NBC 5 and the Kimbell Art Museum would like to invite you to “Matsuri: A Samurai Celebration,” on Saturday, June 21, from 1:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Kimbell Art Museum.

This free festival will kick off with the traditional processional of the mikoshi shrine, which was donated to Fort Worth by its sister city Nagaoka, Japan. Daytime activities include face painting, fan making, martial arts demonstrations, tai chi instruction, anime family films and a “selfie” photo booth. Evening activities include outdoor musical performances by singer-songwriter, Sara Jaffe, and Dallas indie rock band, Air Review.

Matsuri, meaning “festival” in Japanese, is inspired by the Kimbell Art Museum’s current exhibition, Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection. The Samurai Exhibit is open now through August 31, 2014.
