Amarillo Museum of Art's latest exhibition is coming off the walls for a family fun day activity.

Play, Design, Build will run from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at the museum, 2200 S. Van Buren St. Admission is free.

The family event is inspired by the museum's Biennial 600: Architecture exhibition, which showcases artwork inspired by architecture created within a 600-mile radius of Amarillo. The diverse exhibition includes real and fanciful renderings, sculpture, paintings and more, juried by award-winning Oklahoma City architect Rand Elliott.

"We have a really cool exhibition up, and we would love people to come in and see it," said Julie Talley, curator of education. "We love having family events where there's no cost to the family, so maybe someone who hasn't been to the museum can come and check us out."

Attendees can create their own architecture-inspired artwork, including dioramas, a chalk-smeared cityscape, sketches of the museum and its surroundings, Lego structures and more.

"We try to find something fun and appropriate for all ages," Talley said, noting that the architecture exhibition was "a bit of a challenge."

"But we like a challenge. We like how we keep on getting fun, diverse exhibitions because it does keep us on our toes," she said.

The Amarillo National Bank cook team will provide a free hot dog lunch with Blue Bell ice cream, chips and a drink.
