No! Wild animals from the Cincinnati Zoo at the Taft Museum of Art? Yes indeed, on Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., the Museum’s Third Sunday Funday for youth and families kicks off with a self-guided tour to find animals in the art on view. The “Art Cart” will be fitted with materials replicating the texture of different animal skins with the opportunity to not only make a funny animal puppet but also to partake in face painting — if you want to look like an animal yourself! At 2 p.m.
actual live animals from the Cincinnati Zoo arrive with their handlers. Probably no elephants. There’s also a tour of the highlights of the collection at 1:30 p.m. for those who can take animals or leave them. Sunday Aug. 19. Admission free on Sundays. The Taft Museum of Art. 316 Pike St., Downtown. taftmuseum.org .
