Did you know that at the Hunter Museum of American Art, it’s not just about the incredible art that is all around you? Nope! In fact, it’s here that kids can actually learn all about American history as they check out the many exhibits at this Chattanooga experience.
Perched high over the Tennessee River (which means pretty amazing views!), the Hunter Museum of American Art is filled with collections that focuses on American art, ranging from the Colonial period right through to the present day. It’s where entire families can go and enjoy wandering the halls, being inspired by the artwork, and learning something new!
It’s a great way for kids to start conversations with you about what they think it means to be American – both what it MEANT, and what it means now.
The Hunter Museum of American Art is also a great place where kids can learn that the wonderful world of art, doesn’t mean just painting! The collections feature works on paper, as well as sculptures, furniture, glass, and mixed media.
There are ceramics to enjoy, installations to be wowed by, and even metal where kids can talk about what they think it represents.
The museum also loves to offer community events, from interactive discussions, to hands-on educational courses for kids, and lecture series, it’s worth checking out their diary and making sure you don’t miss out!
And of course, what would the museum be without Hunter Kids! With programs and classes, as well as camps and other fun experiences for kids, they will make sure that art is FUN!
So let’s have an art attack, and get inspired!
