As always, the hands-on fun inspires children to learn more about the exhibitions on display in the galleries, the building’s architecture, or holidays and traditions while experimenting with materials and art techniques.

Inspired by ¬¬¬the exhibition Work in Progress: Considering Utopia, create magnetic shapes, forms, and figures and use them to imagine your own artistic utopia.
