January 22, 2010

We had a blast this week at the Science in Art exhibit taking place at the Seoul Art Center through March 1, 2010.

Cost is:
36month~13 yrs. 11,000 won (with a Mission Book included)
14yrs.~ Adult 9,000 won
(Special Daddy Rate of 8,000 won)

Hours are 11:00 to 19:00 and the exhibit is held inside the main building in the V-Gallery.

This art exhibit is like none you’ve ever seen. Nine famous works of art are displayed and each has a fantastic hands-on kids component to explore. At the ticket book, you can also rent an audio guide in English for a few extra Won. I highly recommend this as it explains the fascinating science behind each exhibit. The guide is targeted for kids so they can get the most out of the displays.

Here’s a shot of the outside of the Seoul Art Center in Seocho, Seoul.

At the entrance of “Science in Art,” a small gift shop sells coloring books, stickers and books that complement the exhibit.

These three characters guide kids through the exhibit.

Seurat’s “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” and a multimedia study of pointillism or dot art. Here’s a fun website for kids to learn more about Seurat.

Kandinsky’s work is made interactive on this adjacent multimedia screen.

Using 3D glasses, kids can reach out and touch elements of the moving art.

The kids loved these images that spin

Cat and Bird by Paul Klee

Interesting facts for kids about the Fibonacci Sequence, a pattern of numbers in mathematics.

Using a pinhole camera to trace The Milkmaid.

Exploring the Mona Lisa with fractal patterns.

This exhibit was probably everyone’s favorite. It was hilarious watching Mona Lisa’s face change and warp with the touch of a finger.

This 3D program was cool. By holding a tile in front of the camera, kids could make a 3D image appear on the screen.

This green maze of blocks was simply fun to run through!

Partaking at the Last Supper.

Here we learned about the Magic Squares and completed an accompanying activity in the Mission Booklet.

Getting inside the “Starry Night.”

This wall of foam patterns was a great place for both moms and kids to play!
