- At our April Free First Saturday event, we asked kids what they thought about the artworks in the exhibition Lifelike. Here is what Annie, age 6, said about one of her favorites:
- Ron Mueck, Crouching Boy in Mirror
Pick one word to describe this work of art: Real.
Why did you pick that word? It looks so real because of hands and nails.
Tell us if there is something you don’t like and why. His underwear is showing.
What does it make you think about? Going under water.
Make up a story about this work of art… He is sitting like that because he wants to see sea creatures.
We’re collecting young people’s thoughts on art all the time. What does your child have to say? Come visit the Walker, pick up an ArtThink worksheet, and let him tell us what he thinks!
Viewfinder posts are your opportunity to “show & tell” about the everyday arts happenings, interesting sights and sounds made or as seen by Minnesota artists, because art is where you find it. Submit your own informal, first-person responses to the art around you to katie(at)mnartists.org, and we may well publish your piece here on the blog. (Guidelines: 300 words or less, not about your own event/work, and please include an image, media, video, or audio file, and one sentence about yourself.)
