Chase the Sunset: Art & Music in Palo Duro Canyon (2018)


High Plains Public Radio & the Amarillo Art Institute present the 3rd Annual Chase the Sunset: Art & Music in Palo Duro Canyon!

On Saturday, August 11th, HPPR & AAI invite kids of the High Plains to CHASE THE SUNSET with a celebration of art, music, & nature to bid the summer a final farewell.

From 6:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m., kids can enjoy a variety of fun activities to spark their creativity and curiosity, including a nature walk through the canyon, pastel landscape drawing, pinch pot ceramics, make-your-own wind chimes, nature trivia, face painting, fingernail art, & more! At sunset, we’ll bust out the blankets, relax with snacks, and get down to live music, welcoming the moon and stars. Plus, kids might get a glow-in-the-dark surprise!

So join us in the Palo Duro Canyon to bid the summer farewell! Come CHASE THE SUNSET with High Plains Public Radio & the Amarillo Art Institute.
