Arts, Beats and Eats

It’s the DAI’s centennial … we’re turning 100 years old in 2019, and we’re celebrating with a huge community arts festival on Sunday, October 6!



Arts, Beats and Eats is a special centennial community open house, taking place noon – 7:00 p.m. inside the museum and on the museum grounds. Get ready to party at this FREE family event in honor of the DAI’s 100th birthday, with a food truck rally, fall beer garden, art activities, photo booth, live music outside, entertainment inside, plus giveaways, and more!

On the museum grounds, a stage will feature live music from local bands Kick-N-Flava, Shakedown and Hey There Morgan throughout the day, alongside costumed superheroes, jugglers, an art car and outdoor games. There will also be a food truck rally, featuring Bella Sorella Pizza, Rolling Indulgence, Crème de la Crème Cakery and other food trucks, as well as a fall beer garden.

Inside the museum, the Mimi and Stuart Rose Auditorium will feature live entertainment, Zoot Theater will have a puppet petting zoo–recreating the famous “Weng’s Zoo” of the 1940s–in the Hale cloister, and the Shaw Gothic Cloister will host art activities, a LEGO mural community art project, and a host of local non-profits set up with information, activities, and giveaways.
