Shout out to Audrey, one of our favorite young visitors who has been coming to the museum since she was tiny. She's amassed quite a collection of creations from all of the classes and programs she's attended. Here, she shares a favorite (his name is Bobert) with fellow students during her first virtual class. We can't wait to see and create with you again, soon, Audrey!

anyone remember the painted stairs at the art museum in the 1970s? Would love to see a photo. I remember a rainbow 🌈 and lots of bright colors. We have quarantine chalk fatigue and I am thinking of letting the kids paint the front steps 🙃
