Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery |   Tours

Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery
A centerpiece of the new Frost Art Museum slated to open in 2008, the Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery & Museum terrace, will welcome families, students and guests with interactive activities designed to educate and entertain. The Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery will be an integral part of every visit to the Frost Art Museum. There will be exhibits that are high-tech as well as low-tech; exhibits that allow for individual exploration and others that require group interaction; exhibits that encourage physical activity and others for quiet contemplation. In the Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery, visitors will be able to build a modern sculpture with large interlocking shapes, use a touch screen monitor to create a self portrait, create patterns using the theory of positive and negative space, experience the printmaking process through a series of rubbings on low relief metal shapes, or collaborate with a friend on a drawing using a transparent easel.

Grounded in the belief that hands-on activities help children learn, the interactive gallery adds a new dimension to the Museum and will provide a powerful experience for parents and children working together. Through our educational publications and the Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery, we will guide families through the arts and the Museum’s collection. We hope to make the museum experience more enjoyable and to engage the viewer by providing information and posing questions that promote creative thinking and observation.
