The Kohl’s Art Generation Studio has some very nifty doors. They appear to be frosted glass, until you flip a light switch and *click* they are clear. How do they work?!? Here is a full scientific explanation, thanks to the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge.
The Museum Collection contains endless stories. Our paintings hold narratives of mythological legends; decorative art objects tell us of life way-back-when; contemporary art puts our finger on the pulse of what is going on now. But have you ever traced a story through the Collection? There are many ways to do this: you could follow an artist’s work through his or her lifetime, a collector’s vision (Mrs. Bradley, Mr. Layton, the list goes on…), or you could really veer off the beaten track and follow the story of a material–you know, what an art object is made out of. One of our super-star materials? Marble!
