Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery: Rubbish!
Explore the ways that artists use everyday materials to make beautiful works of art! Families can engage with Deborah Butterfield’s horse made out of sticks and mud; Clarence and Grace Woolsey’s bottle-cap wonder; Chakaia Booker’s sculpture made from used car and truck tires, and more! Then, create your own work of art as you design a quilt, rearrange a table with wood scraps, and compose a treasure box. You can even create your own unique treasure from trash at the Rubbish Bar!
The Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery is open during regular Museum Hours.
