Monster Party Exhibit Opens at Boston Children’s Museum

October 27, 2014
Celebrate Friendly Monsters in our Museum Gallery!
(Boston, MA) September 29, 2014 — Boston Children’s Museum recently opened a new Gallery exhibit: Monster Party. Monster Party is a celebration of friendly monsters made accessible through fun interactive monster artwork for all ages. Monster Party work is curated by the Studio Miners, a duo intent on bringing accessible and interactive artwork to all ages in a fun and light-hearted atmosphere.

“Monster Party Exhibit is monster art conceived for children! All your senses will be engaged with things to touch, smell and look at. In our Gallery, you can have fun with interactive monster games, but there’s more! Monster Party has escaped the Gallery space and visitors will be hunting monsters all over the Museum!” said Alice Vogler, Arts Program Manager. “Our amazing line up of artists will have our families monstrously delighted!”

Monster Party includes an interactive monster mural; smelly monster sculptures; a monster hunt; a monster sensory box; monster bean bag toss; and a monster art toy display!
