Coming Attraction: Boone Children's Gallery (mini) re-opening

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art will be offering a slimmed-down version of its interactive Boone Children's Gallery beginning Sept. 13.

The kid-friendly Mecca of hands-on art has been closed for renovation for nearly a year and is scheduled to return to full form in late 2010. (In the above photo, children were able to create model buildings or cities at its "Construct" exhibit.)

According to the LACMA Web site:

"We are excited to reopen a mini-version of the Boone Children's Gallery inside of the Korean art galleries in the Hammer Building. Kids will learn about brush painting used in Korean art."

CC and I just missed it last year before they whipped out the paper mache rope, but I'm looking forward to any version -- mini or otherwise.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday-noon to 5:00 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday-11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Closed Wednesdays
