“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!
