Whether the cowboy boots follow you across the room, or you can add your own art to a coral reef scene or you see Lebron flying across a painting, there is something for children of every age to learn and interact with at museums in OKC. Join us as we hear from  Laura Phillips-Shinn, co-founder of Factory Obscura, Amanda Harmer, manager of family and access programs at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and Natalie Shirley, president & CEO at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum about special programs for kids, temporary exhibitions now on display and ways to engage and talk to children about the importance of art and culture. Don’t forget to bring your little world-changers to these lovely institutions this week for some learning and fun during spring break!
