Education: Arty Facts Themes

A Year in Arty Facts

"Imagine, Create"
Our collections will inspire you to imagine and create new worlds while exploring color and other elements of art.

"Destination Brooklyn"
Brooklyn artists can be found everywhere in the Museum! Learn about the art, history, and culture of our borough.

As the weather cools and the days grow shorter, observe how artists use light and make your own bright artwork.
Note: There will be no Arty Facts December 21 or 28.

"Mix It Up"
Artists combine, transform, and rearrange objects and ideas to create in innovative ways. What can you mix up to show off your creativity?

"Collection Connection: Visible Storage"
Peek inside Luce Visible Storage to find connections with other pieces on view throughout the Museum.

"Go Figure!"
Observe gesture and expression in works ranging from ancient Egyptian figures to beautifully rendered portraits in the installation American Identities.

En plein air is a French expression meaning "in the open air."  As the spring air warms and summer nears, create art inspired by nature.
