Ah, The Sweet Life

By: Jayna Hintz, curator of education on November 10th, 2010

The 2010 Birds in Art exhibition is quickly coming to an end. You have until Sunday, November 14, at 5:00 pm, to see it before it flies away. Birds in Art is always wonderful and this year’s exhibition is no exception.

While visitors are still enjoying Birds in Art, I’ve moved on. Don’t take that the wrong way. “Moving on” for me means developing the next exhibition’s activity guide and Art Park interactives.

What is the next exhibition? It’s simply delicious – I Want Candy: The Sweet Stuff in American Art!

What a sweet job the last few weeks have been. Was that a pun? I must be feeling energetic and sassy from all that sugar!

I’ve used that extra energy to create a fun-filled activity guide, loaded with tempting trivia, candy sleuthing, and sugary sweet things to do. It will be ready and waiting for you to pick up and use when you visit the Museum between November 20, 2010 and January 23, 2011.

Art Park, in the Museum’s lower level, also will be ready for all ages to explore. What can you expect to do in Art Park? You can serve up treats from the sweet shop, mix and match the cupcakes, put on a Nutcracker puppet show, and check out the confectioner card factory and an array of books that are a treat to read.Once you visit I Want Candy at the Woodson Art Museum this winter, you will understand why I’ve moved on to “sweeter things.”
