Check out a big list of free and cheap things for kids to do around Charlotte during summer break!
Children and adults can enjoy a robust noontime meal in Grant Wood’s “Dinner for Threshers,” climb into a tent and explore camping gear in John Singer Sargent’s “Camp at Lake O’Hara,” add corn husks to the flower tower in Diego Rivera’s “Corn Festival” and enter Clementine Hunter’s “Big Chicken” to get behind the reins of a giant rooster.
Visitors can also explore a small collection of Mona Lisa prints featuring the original and famous parodies, then step behind a cutout version and replace Mona Lisa’s face with their own.
The 1,500-square-foot display is designed to promote art appreciation and connection and present opportunities to visualize thinking strategies among children ages 3 to 10.ImaginOn
