A free, monthly IDEAS program created to engage families with children of all ages in activities that encourage conversation, exploration and experimentation through art. Activities include an in-person art-making Design Challenge in Collins Park with art materials provided to participants and an Art Hunt for all ages accessible by phone.


In addition, at-home activities include a virtual family tour of the current exhibitions on view, an Art Hunt to investigate our virtual galleries and an art-making video using materials found at home. Participants are encouraged to display their piece on Instagram tagging the @thebasscreativitycenter!


In honoring the 25th anniversary of exhibiting artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres’ death, art-making projects and themes for the spring season are drawn from the What Remains exhibition, on view through April 11, 2021.

This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. Generous support for this project provided by Art Bridges.
