Inspired by the exhibition The Language of Less, experiment with new materials and ideas to creatively communicate a lot in a simple way.

Studio: Building with Limits
Education Center lobby
Inspired by Dan Flavin’s colorful and geometric sculptures, create a building using only neon lines with artist Cheryl Pope.

Studio: Measure Me
2nd floor Atrium
Thinking about length and width, measure and draw using ribbons of all sorts with artist Allison Yasukawa.

Studio: Shape-by-Shape
4th floor lobby
Inspired by Carol Bove’s Tears, make a very long artwork out of tiny shapes with artist Annie Heckman.

Look & Learn
Designated start times. Sign up at the registration tables.
Explore the exhibition The Language of Less, and talk about the artwork and your ideas with artist Rachel Harper.

Scavenger Hunt
2nd floor Galleries
Use picture clues to find six artworks that are made up of shapes, lines, and angles. Once your search is complete, stop by one of the registration tables to claim your prize.

Stroller Valet
Education Center, ground floor
Move freely through the museum by checking your stroller at our complimentary stroller valet.
