HISTORICAL MUSEUM News:
The changing exhibit room at the Los Alamos Historical Museum will house the “Kids Make History” exhibit until Friday, Sept. 4, 2015.
The museum welcomes the public to enjoy local kids’ artwork on display. The exhibit also includes a number of fun art projects for children, adults and families to participate in.
The art featured in the “Kids Make History” exhibit includes work by students in kindergarten and in the second, third and fourth grades at Aspen, Barranca Mesa, Mountain and Piñon Elementary schools, as well as work from homeschooled children. Students took inspiration for their art from lessons they were taught about homesteading, archaeology and Ancestral Puebloans and their traditions..
The “Kids Make History” exhibit also includes participatory projects for the Los Alamos Historical Museum’s visitors to take part in. There are tables that can seat adults and children that have projects and coloring pages for everyone to use. There also are blank spaces on the wall for the art done by visitors to be added to the exhibit.
