Framed: Step into Art™

May 25 - September 8

Step into famous paintings and experience art like never before in our newest traveling exhibit, Framed: Step into Art™. Enter a world where paintings leap off the canvas and become a large interactive environment for children and families to explore. Experience art from the inside out as children and families go camping in the Canadian Rockies from John Singer Sargent’s Camp at Lake O’Hara, add a flower to Diego Rivera’s fresco for a celebration, and enjoy a meal in Grant Wood’s Dinner for Threshers. Children can also enter the colorful creative world of Clementine Hunter’s Big Chicken, pose as Mona Lisa or curate their own gallery. Art and make believe come alive in this exhibit where children can literally step into famous works of art.

Generous support of this exhibition is provided by the Richard and Elizabeth Fullerton Family Foundation

Framed: Step into Art™ was created by Minnesota Children’s Museum.
