Kick off the school year and celebrate KAM’s newest exhibitions at KAM Fest 2022.

Visit Krannert Art Museum from 10 am–2 pm Tues-Fri Aug 23­–26 to receive a free welcome kit and participate in fun art activities at the museum. (Admission to KAM is always free.)

Each free KAM Fest welcome kit contains a screen-printed KAM tote bag, a KAM button, and a self-guide booklet to guide you through the galleries.

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. Sign up for free student membership and connect with KAM at @kamillinois_lab and @kamillinois on Instagram to stay in the loop about giveaways, tours, art talks, maker events, and more!

While you’re at the museum, stop by Rest Lab, a pop-up space for intentional rest in the Decorative Arts gallery. Play games, listen to music, spend time with friends, and explore creative ways to unwind.

Use #kamfest2022 and tag @kamillinois + @kamillinois_lab to share your KAM Fest experience and invite friends to the museum!
