Botticelli & Bagpipes When the Fort Worth Scottish Pipes & Drums march onto the Kimbell Art Museum grounds in stoic step — the rat-a-tat of drums joined by the emotional sounds of bagpipes — your heart's in the Highlands even if your roots aren't. It's a fitting beginning to Kimbell Fest: Scotland, the family festival that celebrates the "Botticelli to Braque: Masterpieces from the National Galleries of Scotland" exhibit. During the day, enjoy art projects, traditional dance and music, films, a photo booth and more; bring a blanket to sit on and cash for nibbles from the food trucks. Do find your way to the exhibit in the Renzo Piano Pavilion. The collection features Scottish artists Allan Ramsay and Sir Henry Raeburn in addition to works by Diego Velazquez, Johannes Vermeer, John Singer Sargent, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso and Max Ernst, among many others; admission is free during the festival. After the sun sets, settle in for live music from The Wild Feathers, Calhoun and Whiskey Folk Ramblers. Festival, 2-10 p.m. July 18. Free. (Exhibit through Sept. 20; admission, $14-$18.) 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth; 817-332-8451 or kimbellart.org.
