Cy Twombly- Who Knew?

Children’s art tours with Museum Adventures @ the Metropolitan Museum of Art inspire everyone around them, making them look further into the pieces we do!  The children were drawn to a Cy Twombly and took it upon themselves to go to find the hidden marks and letters for which he is known.  Excited to see our Cy Twombly activity mural in Art Adventures provide the stimulation and connection!

We were there on days 10-14, when they were “inking” in the black.  The crew walked us through the process, showed us their materials, the written instructions (this was cool) and were fabulous with the kids and their questions! (and ours:) 2014-06-20 10.41.22
