Gallery Activities

qq

 

The Galleries' activities offer gateways to the exhibitions, allowing visitors to go beyond looking and talking about works of art to engaging with art in new ways. With these  programs, students and families experiment, play, discover, and create as they make connections between their own creation explorations and the ideas, tools, and techniques of contemporary art.

I Spy Artwork Scavenger Hunt

Gallery Hours:
Tuesday-Friday from 10:00am-5:00pm and Saturday from 11:00am-4:00pm

Discover the details in a fun and challenging way! With two levels of difficulty this gallery activity invites participants of all ages to examine art work with a fine-toothed comb.

Give everyone a list of things to find in paintings. There are two ways to win the game. One way to win is to find everything on the list first. Another way is to find the most things in a single painting.



 

Think About It!

Gallery Hours:
Tuesday-Friday from 10:00am-5:00pm and Saturday from 11:00am-4:00pm

Our guided questionnaire is full of colorful pictures of artwork accompanied by conversation starters such as, "What questions would you ask this artist if he or she were here right now?"

This activity is great for anyone who wants to examine artworks in a new way.

Art Box

Gallery Hours:
Tuesday-Friday from 10:00am-5:00pm and Saturday from 11:00am-4:00pm

Boxes full of art materials and instructions provide guided art projects for children of all ages when they visit The Galleries.

The projects relate to the current exhibition, and the artwork can be made right here in The Galleries, on the front steps, or outside on the lawn.

Art-O-Mat

Gallery Hours:
Tuesday-Friday from 10:00am-5:00pm and Saturday from 11:00am-4:00pm

Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend art. The experience of pulling the knob alone is quite a thrill, but you also walk away with an original work of art.

What an easy way to become an art collector.
