Have You Ever Seen Art Like This?


bigfootHow do you sneak art (like shredded carrots) into you kids’ lives (like spaghetti sauce)?

An exhibit based on heroes and monsters from pop culture was just the thing for us. My kids had a blast at the We Could Be Heroes exhibit at BYU’s Museum of Art. It’s pretty much tailor made for my kids—Anakin Skywalker, James Bond, Captain America, Big Foot. It’s a marvelous introduction to pop culture and art.  We all loved it.

We aren’t the poshest family, but I do want my kids to like and appreciate art. We have a trip to London planned for next year so I’m trying to sneak in a little art appreciation this year so our visits to the Tate and the British Museum will mean more to them.

We are starting with baby steps. . . baby Sasquatch steps!
