Welcome fall with open arms at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum Second Saturday. This month’s theme is Autumn Splendor, inspired by the autumnal beauty featured inside and outside MMAM. October’s event offers $1 admission for all, free guided tours, art-making activities, live music in the galleries, everyone’s favorite search-and-find game Bingo Overboard!, and many fall-inspired experiences.

Activities for September’s Second Saturday: Autumn Splendor, include 30-minute guided tours through the museum’s collections, hands-on art activities and more. This month’s art activities include creating leaf masterpieces as well as pulled-string art . Live music in the galleries will feature jazz duo Liberty & Lee at 11:00AM and classical violin and cello music from Heidi Guenther Ryan & Rachel Ryan Dahlgren at 3:00PM. Keeping with October’s theme, Winona-based artist Julie Johnston will be on-site demonstrating en plein air painting.

Second Saturdays is an arts access program with the goal of reducing intimidation and increasing comfortable access to fine arts for everyone. MMAM developed Second Saturdays to change, expand and enrich the way we connect with our community in Winona, Minnesota. Project FINE interpreters will be on-site at MMAM all day to provide interpretation services and support for visitors who speak Spanish and Hmong. MMAM is also pleased to offer free rides to and from the museum with the Winona Transit Service Dial-a-Ride. Please call 507-454-6666 to schedule your ride.

Second Saturdays are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. This highly competitive arts access grant encourages arts organizations across the state to invest in programming that creates long-term engagement between arts organizations and their communities. Second Saturdays is also made possible by our generous sponsor WNB Financial, media sponsor The Water Main, Minnesota Public Radio, Bingo Overboard! sponsor Doug Troke, Farmers Insurance, and music sponsor Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Winona
