Museum Mondays: bringing community kids into the Wright Museum

December 9, 2012 at 10:55 pm

Through generous support of the George S. Parker Exhibition Fund, young people from the Merrill Center and the Boys and Girls Club explored portraiture at the Wright Museum of Art. 

Beloit College and the Wright Museum partnered with Doodles of Beloit to provide an opportunity for kids from the Beloit community to visit the Wright Museum's new exhibit, Looking Ahead, and then create portraits of their own. Beloit College senior and studio art major Miguel Estrella’12 is helped Doodles facilitate this community outreach.

This is one of the initiatives begun by the Wright Museum this semester to create opportunities for Beloit College students to introduce middle school kids to art and to be introduced to docent and teaching experiences.

Earlier this month four Beloit College students led Help Yourself students in a discussion about art at the Wright Museum (pictured below).
