Recently I had the pleasure of making a couple of interactive paper pieces for the youth program at The Nelson-Atkins Art Museum to go along with their new exhibit Decorative Arts of the Worlds Fair 1851-1939! We made a little paper replica of the entrance to the Crystal Palace from the 1851 Worlds Fair that kids can punch out, color and construct. I also got to make a fun 2 foot tall working model of a Ferris Wheel. You can stop by the Nelson-Atkins Museum on Mothers Day and check out the Ferris Wheel and customize and build your own Crystal Palace! Many thanks to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art for giving me such a fun project.
