Activity Spaces

The IMA provides spaces where families and children can get hands-on with the art. Currently, the African Art Activity Space on Floor 3 provides a place where visitors can learn about objects in the collection. Look more more activity spaces soon!

African Art Activity Space

The African Art Activity Space is an interactive in-gallery experience where visitors of all ages can learn about the significance of objects in the permanent collection and participate in hands-on activities.

Primarily designed as a self-guided experience, facilitators activate the space during Hold It! and other special events. Activities change periodically. Current interactives include: African books, a larger than life magnet wall, African symbols rubbing boards, and paper weaving.

African Art Activity Space educational programming is made possible by BKD, LLP.
