From Dark to Light
As it gets darker outside, come inside the Museum to examine how artists use light, dark, and shadows to enhance and inspire their art. Both old and new, there are bright and flashy sculptures, light filled paintings, and dark medieval stained glass in the Museum that will capture our imaginations as we make our own artwork. Each Sunday features a different art activity.
