Search and Find
Roam and view Museum galleries in new ways using Search and Find activity sheets. A Museum map and short clues on a central subject matter describe works of art on view through descriptions of the line, color, or the nature of specific works. Return completed sheets to a staff member for a prize.
This is a gallery interactive opportunity for All Museum visitors (offered to all visitors and highlighted during family programs) in the form of a card deck, with each card containing a cropped image of a collection work on one side and prompts/family-friendly questions on the other side. Find the work within the Museum and then you talk with others about it. Visitors can play all cards, a few, or just one, and cards are free for all to take home and bring back on their next visit to the Museum.
Cards are available everyday in The Studio. Pick up a set on your next visit to the Museum!
