Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology and USU’s Asian-American Student Council partner for the next Saturdays at the Museum activity April 27. The groups combine efforts for a day of dancing and traditional music.
The Asian-American Student Council will perform dances at 1 p.m. at the museum, and patrons can try origami and calligraphy activities throughout the day.
The Museum of Anthropology will also unveil its new “World Music” teaching trunk and present a temporary music exhibit. Kids can play with the new instruments in the trunk and explore traditional music from around the world.
“Our World Music teaching trunk is a favorite of kids since there are so many fun and interesting instruments to play,” said museum assistant Prairie Fox. “Most children love making music and we get to help them do that and teach them something too.”
In addition to the Saturdays at the Museum activity series with its 10 a.m.-4 p.m. hours, community members and USU students alike can visit the museum during its standard operating hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Funding for Saturday events is provided by a grant from the United States Institute of Museum and Library Services. More information about the IMLS is available online.
The USU Museum of Anthropology can be found on the USU campus in the south turret of the historic Old Main building, Room 252. Admission is free. For Saturday activities, free parking is available in the adjacent lot, south of the building.
