Family Activites at the Cantor Arts Center

Family Art Classes
This summer, the Center will offer exciting family classes for kids of all ages along with classes just for kids.

Three to See: Family Favorite Artworks
Urchin: Richard Stankiewicz made Urchin from discarded metal, but this scrappy character is full of life. Why do you think people portrayed in art sometimes get away with things the rest of us aren’t supposed to do in public? Located in the Freidenrich Family Gallery for contemporary art.

Dragon: This small, sleek dragon from Japan was built from 134 intricate pieces. How would it move if the hidden springs in its mouth, claws, legs, and body came to life? Located in the J. Sanford Miller Family Gallery for Asian art.

Untitled (Bronze horse): You can’t miss Deborah Butterfield’s beautiful horse sculpture when you enter the main lobby of the museum. But is it all it appears to be? Look for the display behind the sculpture to see—and touch—what it’s really made of. Located in the main lobby.

Remember, please don't touch the art. Help us preserve these works for future generations.
