The Yellowstone Art Museum will open its doors free of charge on Saturday, Sept. 23, as part of Museum Day Live!, a push for museum participation spearheaded annually by Smithsonian magazine.

Museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington D.C. facilities — which offer free admission every day — by opening their doors for free to those who download a Museum Day Live! ticket.

The Smithsonian recognizes the power of museums and other cultural institutions to provide visitors with insight and inspiration.

The event represents a nationwide commitment to curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge. Over 200,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and this year’s event is expected to attract more museum visitors than ever before.

The Yellowstone Art Museum, which is located at 401 N. 27th St., is displaying "My Hero! Contemporary Art and Superhero Action" and "Modernist Intersections: The Tia Collection." More information about current exhibitions can be found by visiting the museum website, www.artmuseum.org.

The Museum Day Live! ticket is available for download at Smithsonian.com/museumday. Visitors who present the Museum Day Live! ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on Sept. 23.
