The Museum has always welcomed kids and families and had activities in different locations around the Museum. The new Gallery further expands the ways in which families can interact with art and participate in creative play.
“We felt it was important to create a special place where families can sit down and relax and know that the Gallery has been designed with kids in mind. The Space is sturdy enough to handle the curiosity of our youngest visitors.” Continues Pickering. “We’re also really thrilled that an artist of Mikala Dwyer’s status agreed to work with us on this project. Mikala is a master at making intelligent artworks that are playful and fun.”
The Gallery includes new locally-made custom furniture in a variety of sizes that will be able to grow and move with each incoming exhibition, and enable a range of engagement activities to take place in the space.
