1 Hour : Visit It : Walter Wick Exhibit

image via
Brigham Young University's Museum of Art is currently featuring a kid-friendly exhibit entitled Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic. My kids and I saw pieces from a cardboard city (they wanted to make their own at home), large framed prints from the artist's I Spy series, and the above set that was created for a photo shoot. This was one art event that kept the kids eager and interested. (The excited mood even carried over to a couple other areas of the museum where we saw recycled art and American portraiture.)

The BYU-MOA exhibit runs through August 1st. On June 10th, the museum will host a special family art day using Wick's works as the theme.
