YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown hosted a family day Sunday afternoon.

The event included hands-on activities, like painting and crafting. Guests could even partake in a scavenger hunt.

During the event, museum-goers met the holographic artist Sally Weber.

The museum hosts a family day once a month. Staff said it’s not only fun but educational too, and can help children with learning colors and language skills.

The Trumbull branch of the museum held its family day Saturday. The event was free and open to the public.

The Butler is located on Wick Avenue in Youngstown. It was the first American art museum in the country.
