Indulge in art like never before in Framed: Step Into Art, a traveling exhibition created by the Minnesota Children’s Museum. This bilingual exhibition transports visitors through a giant picture frame into a world where paintings by well-known artists leap off the canvas and invite children inside the art experience. As visitors play and move through the exhibition, they are challenged to set up camp in the Canadian Rockies at John Singer Sargent’s Camp at Lake O’Hara, travel south of the border through Diego Rivera’s Corn Festival, set a table and cook a meal in Grant Wood’s Dinner for Threshers and ride a giant chicken in Clementine Hunter’s Big Chicken. Designed for children ages 5-12 and their families, guests will spend time with paintings from iconic to contemporary—and learn to appreciate their own, as well as others’ opinions of individual art.

Framed: Step Into Art™ was created by the Minnesota Children’s Museum.
