Animal-Themed Artmaking Activities

A Walk in the Woods is a new family space located in the Hamilton Building, level 3. Included with general admission (free for kids and free for members).

Step into the forest and experience new animal-inspired activities created to celebrate the exhibition Stampede: Animals in Art.

Build with Branches

Build freestanding horse sculptures inspired by artist Deborah Butterfield. What other animals can you create out of branch-like blocks?

Birdwatching Challenge

Pick up a pair of binoculars and be the first to spot different birds in a colorful flock. Play alone, or challenge a friend.

Animal Remix

Mix-and-match ears, wings, stripes, and tails to create unique animals. Use your imagination to bring these new creatures to life. How might they move, sound, or behave?
