Kids can experience the art of Marc Chagall at an exhibit opening this month at Port Discovery Children’s Museum.
“Chagall for Children,” an interactive exhibit, will allow kids to create mosaics, weave tapestries, use touch screens to digitally alter Chagall’s masterpieces, conduct symphonies and even insert themselves into one of his paintings.
Chagall was a Russian-born Jewish painter who lived most of his life in France. The exhibit features 14 reproductions of his works including “The Birthday,” “The Rooster,” and “Paris Through the Window.”
“The similarities between Chagall’s fanciful paintings and children’s artwork is one of the reasons his work was chosen as the center of the exhibit,” according to a press release. Developed by the Kohl Children’s Museum of Greater Chicago, “Chagall for Children” is an introduction to art for very young children that can be enjoyed by children of all ages.
The exhibit will be at Port Discovery May 23 to Sept. 7. The museum is located at 35 Market Place in Baltimore. Admission is $11.75 for children 2 and up. For more information call 410-727-8120 or visit www.portdiscovery.org.
