Every element in the new Studio Play gallery is strategically designed to inspire a relationship between visitors and the museum’s world-class collection. From a 25-foot digital display of artwork that zooms and focuses based on the viewer’s physical movement, to the Create Studio where visitors can make original artwork, there is something here to inspire every person who walks through its doors.
Using principles of active learning, Studio Play introduces skills to spark an appreciation for art, and encourages a curious, playful attitude. It is a magical beginning; a visionary portal into the museum at large.
A Chinese philosopher once said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn.” Studio Play involves everyone in the delights of looking and the joy of creating.
