It's Your Turn: a family friendly exhibition

It’s Your Turn: Arctic Spirit

Animals play an important role in Arctic cultures – and they did in Henri Matisse’s life too!

It’s Your Turn: Arctic Spirit will bring the inner artist and arctic spirit to life for our young visitors with original activities in a kid-friendly exhibit featuring two very special animals: Henri the Husky and Raoudi, Matisse’s beloved pet schnauzer.

Children and the young at heart can view Yup’ik dolls from the private collection of Chuna McIntyre and then design a Yup’ik paper doll to take home. Back by popular demand is the Arctic game Never Alone that kids can play in the gallery. And Henri the Husky and Raoudi will e your gallery “hosts” for more original activities!

To fully experience this special installation, we invite you to join us for the After Lunch Art Bunch-a new program for families and kids on the this Saturday of each month during the exhibition.
