Each iteration of this monthly series will focus on one specific artwork, artist, or theme found in our current exhibitions, welcoming families for a brief tour followed by an engaging activity developed specifically for children, ages 5-12.
Paper Cities will have children cut, colour, and arrange reproductions of well-known monuments, linking to exhibiting artist Kotama Bouabane's photography, to travel the world and create their own city of famous monuments.
