FOR CHILDREN: The Elements of Art and Design
December 14, 2019 – ongoing
MMofA’s exhibition, FOR CHILDREN, is an exhibition organized by the Mobile Museum of Art specifically designed for kids!
The exhibition presents a maze of galleries for children to experience immersive, creative, and wacky visual environments. It is designed for fun, yet teaches kids the basic elements of creative art and design (Line, Texture, Color, Scale, and Shape), as well as relationships between science and art. The exhibition includes hands-on experiences and photo opportunities for parents and grandparents!
FOR CHILDREN 2020 features more immersive installations, interactive elements like a giant LITE BRITE, video projections, miniature environments designed by local artists, and different themed rooms.
FOR CHILDREN is generously sponsored by several foundations, businesses, and organizations in Mobile:
The Crampton Trust, established by Katharine Cochrane Crampton
The Caring Foundation
Hand Arendall LLC
The exhibition is conceived and organized by Museum director Deborah Velders and designed by Don Bowden Architecture with additional design assistance from Star Design Graphics of Mobile.
