Stop by the Discovery Cart and do something you can’t do anywhere else in the Museum—touch and feel the materials from which works of art are made. The Discovery Carts focus on six different art-making techniques: oil painting; gold-ground painting; ceramics; beadwork and carvings; sculpture; and printmaking. 

This activity is free with Museum admission. On Thursdays, Museum admission is free, courtesy of Shell.
