Join us for discussion, curriculum connections, and activities inspired by the special exhibition Open House: Domestic Thresholds with Heather Hart, Edra Soto, and Rodney Taylor, on view at Albright-Knox Northland. The artworks on view by these three artists say something about what “home” means to them.

Begin with a guided tour with School and Docent Programs Coordinator Lindsay Kranz to discover how to use the artworks in this exhibition as a catalyst for student-centered learning. After exploring curriculum connections, the workshop will continue with a quick hands-on art activity to support lesson plan development.

Then, the Buffalo Museum of Science will facilitate a STEM activity designed to explore concepts of energy conservation using everyday items to insulate a cardboard house and test its efficiency.


Space is limited; registration and pre-payment are required. Please register online, call 716.270.8292, or sign up at the Albright-Knox Northland Welcome Desk. If you are a member of the Buffalo Museum of Science, please call or register in person to obtain the member rate.
