Kick off the school year and celebrate KAM’s newest exhibitions at KAM Fest 2021

Visit Krannert Art Museum from 10 am–2 pm to receive a free welcome kit with fun art activities to guide you through the museum. We’ll give welcome kits to the first 100 students every day of KAM Fest. Just show your I-card and start exploring the galleries (admission to KAM is always free.)

When you pick up your welcome kit, sign up for free student membership and receive an enamel pin featuring art from the KAM collection. Connect with KAM educators at @kamillinois_lab and with the museum at @kamillinois on Instagram to find out about fun giveaways, tours, and other content during KAM Fest and throughout the year.
