Elijah Pierce Exhibits
Eye Spy: Adventures in Art
Eye Spy, an interactive exhibition for children and families, features important objects from the Museum's collections displayed in architectural settings that relate to the time and place they were made. The center features four areas where, through a variety of games, puzzles, computer stations, and "make and take" art projects, visitors take a behind-the-scenes look at museums, learn about the carvings of Elijah Pierce, and the life and art of George Bellows.
