Three new activity kits provide fun ways for parents to talk about artwork with children aged 2–8. Each Gallery Gear tote bag provides hands-on learning experiences inspired by one of three works of art:

  • The Architect’s Dream by Thomas Cole (Main Museum)
  • Egyptian burial case for Ta-Mit (Main Museum)
  • Counterman-Diner by Emily Brock (Glass Pavilion)

Families take the totes to the galleries where they read books related to the theme of the artwork and explore creatively using various multi-media materials. A parent guide provides suggestions on how to engage children to look at works of art in new ways. The totes are free to borrow and can be checked out for one-hour slots at the Information Desks.
