Art Discovery Center

Painted in bold colors and intricate designs inspired by the Asian collections of the GWV Smith Art Museum, the Art Discovery Center is a place for visitors to try on costumes and armor, play gallery games, and create their own works of art. Follow this board to see what creative ideas are unfolding!
