Kohl’s Color Wheels

Imagine a vehicle that brings creativity and ingenuity into your community—a mobile art experience where kids not only take part in fun projects, but also grow and learn through art! That’s the idea behind Kohl’s Color Wheels, a van that will make appearances at community festivals and educational events throughout the year.

Watch for Kohl’s Color Wheels at these festivals this summer, and take part in a variety of fun-filled art projects, inspired by the Museum’s feature exhibition Van Gogh to Pollock: Modern Rebels.
