About Art Labs

Art Labs offer a gateway to the collection, allowing visitors to go beyond looking and talking about works of art to engage with art in new ways. In these interactive spaces, kids and adults experiment, play, and create as they make connections between their own creative explorations and the ideas, tools, and techniques of modern and contemporary art.

Our goals for all labs are to create:

  • A safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment for all visitors, especially families
  • A hands-on experience in which visitors can create, experiment, and explore
  • A thematic lens through which visitors can engage with art and art making
  • A place that is responsive to new ideas and discoveries for both visitors and staff
  • A facilitated environment in which visitors can make connections between their experience in the lab, in the galleries, and in their daily lives
