This special exhibition is specifically designed to engage ages 2–12 and features 14 multi-sensory exploration stations, each incorporating a high-quality reproduction of one of Marc Chagall’s works encouraging children to explore art principles such as color, composition, light and texture. Many stations are accompanied with audio descriptions, highlighting information about the artwork upon which the interactive is based. Example stations: Job Tapestry: Tapestry provided Chagall with yet another form of artistic expression. Visitors cooperatively create a tapestry by weaving and sewing. The Juggler: Visitors explore the role of detail in this work by using a touch screen to animate elements of the painting. Paris Through the Window: By experimenting with composition using magnetized pieces, visitors create their own picture of Paris. The Poultry Yard: In a creative approach to form and structure, visitors experiment with brightly-colored, three dimensional, soft-sculpture animals to create fantasy creatures and scenes.
