Why? Please Touch!

A couple weeks ago, Jeffrey, my mom, and I headed to the Akron Art Museum to see the amazing Please Touch exhibition.

Please Touch puts aside traditional museum rules of behavior and encourages visitors of all ages to touch all the artwork.

You can spin the wheels of “Today I Feel” or express yourself on this sweet message board.

You can experiment with this fun face or move around all these colorful shapes, too.

Jeffrey also loved the windows with cool critters (AKA the “Horrible Adorables”) inside and fun stories to find.

All the artists who worked on Please Touch are from the Northeast Ohio region and have created something truly unique, fun, and special for kids of all ages!

Beyond just the exhibition itself, there are tons of fun toys to keep your kids entertained in the beautiful lobby of the Akron Art Museum.

This was such a wonderful way for Jeffrey to experience art and to feel like a part of it! Please Touch is a gift of the Mary S. and David C. Corbin Foundation and is open at the Akron Art Museum through July 16. And the Akron Art Museum offers Free Thursdays as a gift of the J.M. Smucker Company, so that’s a great thing to keep in mind as you plan your visit!
