Virtual Building Challenge

Author: Sarah Clowe, Director of Art Programs

Thank you to our participants!

Our first Virtual Building Challenge has wrapped and we have some creative builds to share!

Inspired by our annual LEGO Building Challenge, we developed an event that could be completed from the comfort of your home, using any building materials that you have on hand (blocks, recycled materials, etc). Our theme was towers and arches inspired by two Thomas Cole paintings in our collection: Ruined Tower and Interior of the Colosseum Rome. To learn more about these works watch the video tour of Junior Interpreter, Eva introducing the paintings.
