Kohl’s Art Generation Online Lab & Gallery


Have you ever wanted to know what happens behind the scenes at a museum? Have you wondered how artists create images that look so real that you could seemingly step right into them?

These are the types of questions students and families explored in the Kohl’s Art Generation Lab and Gallery at the Milwaukee Art Museum, in Museum Inside Out and Illusions: Near and Far. These exhibitions have closed (you’ll find new exhibitions opening in the Kohl’s Education Center in late 2015), but now you can step behind the scenes of the Museum and check out art-making illusions from your own home! With this guide, you can see videos, engage in fun-filled activities, and look at works of art through a virtual re-creation of Museum Inside Out and Illusions: Near and Far.
