Nest HereIn the Learning Center
March 6 – June 19, 2016

What does a nest suggest to you? 

Come to the Learning Center to explore ideas around nesting, and be inspired by artist James Prosek’s childhood drawings of birds, on view during The Nest, an exhibition of art in nature. Visitors can experiment with making a creative nest to bring home or to add to the life-size #KMAtree. In the background, bird songs from over 138 species of North American birds, will play from the Smithsonian Field Guide to the Birds of North America. Read about birds, nests, and home in the reading corner, and share your thoughts on the respond wall. You may also borrow a themed Imagine It! bag to help you explore, experiment, and create throughout the KMA campus.
