Kids’ Corner Family-in-Residence: Kaleidoscope Cove

Don’t miss Kaleidoscope Cove in Kids’ Corner! This interactive installation— imagined by the Museum’s first Family-in-Residence, parents Ben and Eilish Volta and their two sons Milo and Thor—explores Howard Pyle’s work through a kaleidoscopic lens. The temporary installation features a cascading paper garland waterfall and a curtain of paper gold coins, a kid-sized geometric treasure cove, and details of Pyle’s work patterned on the walls. Kaleidoscope Cove will be on view through October 30, 2016.

Kids’ Corner Creativity Hours:
May-October: Thursdays, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.; Fridays, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.; and Sundays, Noon – 3:00 p.m.

During designated Creativity Hours, kids are invited to add materials to the evolving treasure cove and create their own kaleidoscopes. Families can also experience the Pyle galleries through the imagination of Milo and his gallery map while creating their own art-inspired maps.

Please help us keep Kaleidoscope Cove special for all families.   

  • Be gentle and safe while you explore the space.
  • Keep your feet on the floor while you play and explore.
  • Beanbags should stay on the ground for kids to sit down.
  • Put books and shapes away when you are finished for the day.
  • It’s always better when families stay and play together!

Explore Kaleidoscope Cove with your family. It’s Okay to touch, read, build, and play in this space. This is a good place to relax and take a break. Snacks are welcome.
