Target sponsors 2,200 free family nights and weekend events at city festivals, and free or reduced-price days at 120 museums all over the country. We've attended some of these fun cultural activities, and visited some of the museums on Target Days here in Dallas, and in Fort Worth.
In fact, last month, we were at the Nasher Sculpture Center downtown, because it was free from 10am to 5pm, for their Target day, as it is every first Saturday, like tomorrow July 7th. They had a kid's art scavenger hunt, story times, hands-on art projects, and more. You have to go check out "Kink" which is a crocheted bridge that you can walk thru:

Share the culture! According to Adopt the Arts, studies have shown that kids who participate in visual arts express their ideas in more complex language than other students. (that equals better grades in school y'all)
