KaleidoZone – Javaka Steptoe: Radiant Child

Through Sunday, May 14
In this exhibit, artist and illustrator Javaka Steptoe tells the story of an artist who has inspired him, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Like Steptoe, Basquiat was raised in New York City, where art became his outlet and earned him worldwide attention.   The artwork featured in this exhibit are illustrations from the book Steptoe authored about Basquiat of the same name.  The book won the 2017 Caldecott Medal, honoring “the most distinguished American picture book for children, as well as the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Book Award, which recognizes “an African American illustrator of outstanding books for children and young adults.” Steptoe’s exhibition combines traditional illustration techniques with unusual material choices to create exciting multi-layered images that capture the life of a dynamic artist.
All ages. Free with museum admission.

KLUTZ® Amazingly Immature
Through Sunday, May 7, 2017
Families are encouraged to embrace their inner zany genius while exploring what these behaviors can teach about science, engineering, math, and literacy.  Jump into STEM as you pull a tablecloth out from under a place setting to learn about inertia, build a boomerang as an introduction to aerodynamics, and fold paper rings to explore geometry.
Amazingly Immature encourages communication and learning through laughter, play, comedy and memories of different generations’ childhood hijinks.

In this exhibit visitors of all ages learn important life-long lessons:

    • We naturally use science, engineering, and math ideas and skills for fun
    • We express our creativity through silly/immature behaviors
    • Goofiness always has a place in our lives, even beyond childhood
    • It takes time to master new skills, some longer than othersWe are always learning
