Summer Fun Day at the Clay Center in Charleston

The Clay Center is having its annual Summer Fun Day that allows everyone free admission to the museum on Sunday July 12, 2015 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Clay Center Summer Fun Day is a celebration of the center’s birthday. The Clay Center opened in July of 2003 and the first Summer Fun Day took play in July of 2004.

The mission behind Summer Fun Day at the Clay Center is to give everyone the chance to come and learn something new while having fun.

LeAnn Cain, the Clay Center’s media contact said, “Summer Fun Day is our annual free day for anyone and everyone to come check out the Clay Center and enjoy a fun afternoon learning and playing together.”

The Clay Center will be offering a free planetarium show in the Digital Dome that has been recently updated. Other activities available at Summer Fun Day include live music, face painting, balloon animals and magic tricks.

There is a fresh new lineup of musicians prepared for this years Summer Fun Day. Performers include Ron Sowell & The Killer Tomatoes, Mark Parsons-Justice and Spencer Elliot.

The Digital Dome will be showing “Losing the Dark.” This show has never been screen at the planetarium before. Seating will be limited.

There are several different exhibits that are being displayed at Summer Fun Day. One of the exhibits is the “Use the Force” exhibit that reveals the science behind motion, magnets, air pressure and simple machines.

At the Museum of Art guests will be able to explore the world of “MATH+ART” an exhibit where artists used shapes, patterns, symmetry and proportions to create their artwork.

“We expect another year of new faces and lots of fun. Summer Fun Day is a great opportunity to check out the Clay Center for the first time,” Cain said, “So we hope to once again make some new friends at this year’s event.”
