ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) ----- To celebrate the culmination of a special exhibit, the Rockford Art Museum hosted a Community Day for kids and families.

Partnering with the YMCA of the Rock River Valley, the free event had a DJ, food trucks, and activities for all ages, including art projects, games, and a bounce house.

The festival was in honor of the closing of “Not Without a Fight,” the museum's current exhibition featuring Chicago artist Cheryl Pope, which ends its run on Memorial Day.

"So, we just wanted to bring people together in a celebration of Rockford and just show each other that there are organizations out there that can help you and there's some great activities in the local downtown area," said Janelle O’Malley, Education Coordinator for the Rockford Art Museum.
