Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery

Illusions: Near and Far—Through September 1, 2014

The Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery is open during Museum hours.

Explore how artists make a flat surface appear as if you could step right into it in Illusions: Near and Far, the latest interactive gallery installation. Try some of the tricks artists have invented such as using size, overlapping, sharp and fuzzy edges, and more to create the illusion of space. Then “build” your own monumental work of art!
