The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum will celebrate its fall 2013 Family Day on Saturday, Nov. 23, from noon to 4 p.m. Parents and children are invited to enjoy food and music, bilingual Museum tours, art activities, face painting, and a fun expedition through the Museum led by members of the Roxy Theatre Group.
The Frost will also be unveiling the redesigned Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery, which features activity stations that entice kids to explore Museum exhibits and collections, and expose them to the visual arts in creative, innovative ways that expand children’s sense of who they are and heightens their awareness of the world around them.
The new Gallery is designed to be worthy of a child’s curiosity and the admiration of adults, and to demonstrate that everyone is hard-wired for creativity. The whiteness of the space serves as a blank slate for artistic expression and a variety of media, from new-age technologies, including Smart Table and iPads, to traditional art-making, such as super white Lego bricks and drawing with paper and pen. It is an environment rich in evocative objects that trigger and inspire active learning, choices and engagement.
Event is free and open to the public.
