Framed: Step into Art™

Enter the Framework of Famous Paintings

Experience art like never before in Framed: Step into Art™. This engaging exhibit transports visitors to a world where paintings leap off the canvas and invite children inside the art experience. As visitors play and move through the exhibit, they are challenged to ride a giant chicken, 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 five paintings – from iconic to contemporary – and learn to appreciate their own, as well as others’ opinions of individual art.

Host benefits include:

  • Opportunities to utilize visual thinking strategies, created by the organization Visual Understanding in Education which supports National Standards for Art Education
  • Collapsible and easy-to-store wheeled carts
  • Top-notch educational, marketing and installation materials
  • Responsive support from experienced staff
