The Menil Collection, which opened in 1987, is commemorating its 25th anniversary with events and programs through the end of the year. The special anniversary exhibition Dear John & Dominique: Letters and Drawings from the Menil Archives and a campus tour, Voices of the Menil: A Cell Phone Audio Walk, are ongoing.
Festivities begin at 3 p.m. with a promenade performance by the legendary, award-winning Kashmere Reunion Stage Band and continue with the renowned TSU Jazz Ensemble. Each band will perform their own distinctive version of "Happy Birthday."
Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy music, dancing, treasure hunt and birthday cake and ice cream until the final notes and birthday candles are blown out at 6 p.m. The outdoor festivities continue with improvisational jazz dancing on the lawn with City Dance Company and a scavenger hunt for children.
