Art at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

The past couple of years, for my mom’s birthday, we’ve gone to the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. We spend the day hanging out and enjoying some family time with the little ones. It’s a really wonderful, engaging space, with lots of color and art to cheer up a gray mid-February weekend!

There are so many opportunities to interact with the art at the museum. This piece is Text Rain, by Camille Utterback and Romy Achituv, 2001.

This area was also particularly fun for me, watching the kids interacting with versions of classic works, like this one of Van Gogh’s “Cafe at Night”, where you can switch lights on and off.

CAT AND TRIO/ EVERY VOICE WE HEAR by Patricia Bellan-Gillen

The whimsical and delightful works by Patricia Bellan-Gillen on this floor of the museum are some of my favorites. You can see more images of the installation on her website: http://patriciabellangillen.com/

This is just a snippet of my faves this time around. If you’ve got kids in your life, the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh is something you’d definitely enjoy.
