Have some fun! In honor of National Coloring Book Day on August 2, 2017, the Yellowstone Art Museum will hold a coloring marathon from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Come and go throughout the entire day. You’re welcome to bring your personal coloring book and tools from home to work on at the museum.
At the same time, the YAM will introduce an artists’ coloring book, with each page designed by a different regional artist. Selections will be juried and there is a small honorarium for artists chosen by the jury. Coloring supplies and the coloring book will be available for purchase.
