In celebration of the ninth annual Art Museum Day, admission will be free on May 18 to The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

Hours will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the museum at 221 N. Main St.

Visitors can participate in a special scavenger hunt that will guide them on an exploration of each of the galleries, including the current featured exhibition, “The Art of Giving: Selections from the Richard M. Scaife Bequest.”

Visitors also are invited to tell their families' immigration stories in a interactive exhibition, organized in conjunction with the earlier “Emigration–Immigration–Migration” exhibition.

The Westmoreland is encouraging visitors to share their Art Museum Day experience via social media with the hashtag #ArtMuseumDay (also tagging the museum).

Art Museum Day is sponsored by the Association of Art Museum Directors to showcase the importance of museums across the United States and Canada as points of learning, creativity and connectivity in their communities.

Other area participants include these Pittsburgh institutions: Carnegie Museum of Art, Andy Warhol Museum and the Frick Pittsburgh.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
