The gallery now features works by James Tissot, Jacob Lawrence, Henry Moore, Ed Hamilton and others.
Quick Start gallery is located on the museum’s main level sculpture court.
The gallery will feature discussion and activity suggestions and includes family audio spots with information accessible by cell phone, “and hands-on and minds-on activities for families to bring the artwork to life,” according to the release.
The new gallery is included with museum general admission.
