MFAH Playdate (At Home): Fun in the Garden October 12, 2020

Enjoy some garden-inspired fun with your little ones, inspired by the exhibition Glory of Spain and the MFAH collection of decorative arts, craft, and design.

Start with Spanish artist Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida’s painting Louis Comfort Tiffany, on view in Glory of Spain: Treasures from the Hispanic Society Museum & Library. Then discover a work by American designer Louis Comfort Tiffany himself: the beautiful glass window A Wooded Landscape in Three Panels.

Now it’s time for “Fun in the Garden”! Use the below how-to video and activity guide to walk your little artists through the renowned works of art, with songs to sing and gardens of felt flowers to create.

After exploring these masterpieces on your own, experience them in person in the MFAH galleries. Glory of Spain is on view through January 3. Plan ahead for your visit with advance timed tickets.
