Nasher Sculpture Center and Target have partnered up on the first Saturday of every month providing FREE admission to this beautiful museum from 10AM-12PM. They provide children’s activities like an art scavenger hunt, kids’ art activity (where the kids’ “get their hands dirty”), sculpture demo, family tours and story time with the Dallas Public Library.
As you enter into the museum, each child receives a gift bag with information about the center and an art scavenger hunt. This scavenger hunt uses a picture of part of the art, and the kids (and parents) search around the museum to find out what the art is called and who created it. Kids are great explorers, and this activity really challenges the kids to look and study the art. I LOVE IT!
As we are searching for art, we run into other exhibits at the museum that we LOVE. Currently at the Nasher, they have an interactive art called “Cuddle on the Tightrope.” Wow! The kids thought this was “sooo cool” & thought the colors were “pretty.”This exhibit is only available until September 9, 2012, so you better head to the museum and check it out soon.
After exploring the museum and “cuddling on the tightrope,” we were hungry. Nasher has a wonderful cafe with Wolfgang Puck’s delicious seasonal sandwiches, salads and soups prepared with farmer’s market produce, artisanal breads and locally-supplied ingredients. They have NasherKids meals that are delicious AND healthy.
Thank you to Target for providing an opportunity for my kids to enjoy art AND to Nasher for have great exhibits for them experience it!
