Exhibition Description

At the museum, we embrace Creativity—the use of imagination and critical thinking to generate new ideas. Central to the creative process is play. Play is a state of being that activates your brain’s neurons, promoting new ideas and mental and physical health.
Senior members of CMA’s Experience Team—the dedicated individuals in the galleries committed to assisting visitors and safeguarding the art—share their perspectives on how select works of art from our collection evoke different modes of play:
Social Play: Connect with other people through activities.
Object Play: Manipulate objects in ways that use curiosity.
Imaginative Play: Create and bring to life imagined scenarios.
Body and Movement Play: Explore how the body interacts with the world.
Notice how play manifests here and in other galleries during your visit.
