THE CHALLENGE OF MODERN ART INTERACTIVE GALLERY

Modern art comes alive in this hands-on space. Visitors enhance their understanding of this often challenging genre with interactive activities designed for all ages.

Walk Through a Painting
Visitors are able to step, literally, into Abraham Rattner’s April Showers painting to a zone where sight and touch are used for learning what art is.
