It is a neat museum full of eclectic pieces using a variety of mediums. There were exhibits made from wood, electronic scraps, broken glass and paints and pizza boxes. The kiddos really enjoyed it and Rick and I loved being able to open up a whole new creative avenue for them.

Noah really liked the wooden sculptures and Kari enjoyed the giant gingerbread house. I was intrigued by a young girl's artwork on a paper plate. She was a patient at an insane asylum who pulled out all but three of the bristles of a paint brush and dotted an entire portrait on a paper plate which she got from the trash since no one would give her paint supplies. Rick really enjoyed Eugene Von Bruenchenhein's exhibit.
It was definitely a great day. We cannot to go to the Smithsonian Institute museums in the next few weeks. Natural History Museum, here we come!
