Art Detectives: The Great Masterpiece Mystery

June 11 - Oct 28, 2017 - Put on your deerstalker (Sherlock Holmes hat) and join the Buell Children’s Museum for a fun and engaging mid-year exhibition. Your mission is to solve one of the masterpiece mysteries set up throughout the museum. Develop the detective tools you need to become a super sleuth and uncover the solutions when you scan your hand and examine finger prints, search for hidden clues, decode secret messages,and discover your “detective name.” Favorite areas get a detective makeover - like the master of disguise area in our costume corner, and more. Visitors will try their hand at painting, portrait sketching, and sculpture as they learn about the elements of art. Once guests are finished creating their own colorful scratch art etching, they can visit the Helen T. White Galleries to see etchings on display by artists Rembrandt van Rijn and Gene Kloss.
