Close Encounters: Los Angeles Museum of Kids’ Art

Close Encounters: Los Angeles Museum of Kids’ Art

Made in L.A. 2014 artist Alice Könitz created a one-room museum to display her friends’ art and share it with others. She calls it Los Angeles Museum of Art. In this workshop, Könitz leads families in building tiny museums inspired by art on view in the galleries and by their imaginations.
