Experience the History and Symbolism of Guernica

In this theater-like space, visitors find a full-size reproduction of Pablo Picasso's (Spanish, 1881-1973) Guernica, the only one of its kind in the world. Reading resources and an easy to follow diagram explain the history and symbolism of this incredible painting.

Walk Through a Painting

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.

Challenge Your Preconceptions

Hanging signs feature questions and comments regarding art. Visitors learn the responses to those comments and questions and express their own feelings about art on the magnetic word wall.

Make Your Own Masterpiece

Visitors have an opportunity to create art on a series of drawing stations and easels, and are free to display their work in the Interactive Gallery or take it home with them.
