Framed: Step Into Art™
Enter the framework of famous paintings and experience art like never before in Framed: Step into Art™. This exhibit transports visitors to a world where paintings leap off the canvas and create impressive environments for visitors to explore. As visitors move through the exhibit, they are challenged to ride a giant chicken attached to a wagon, set up camp in the Canadian Rockies, and prepare dinner for a group of hungry farmers. The exhibit environments are accompanied by information about each artist, and provide conversational prompts that employ Visual Thinking Strategies. Framed: Step into Art provides opportunities for children and adults to spend time with art, encourages visitors to make a connection with art, and supports the National Standards for Art Education.
