A World of Discoveries in Art
In partnership with the Virginia Stage Company, the Chrysler Museum of Art is pleased to team with the Norfolk Public School system to introduce concepts of cultural diversity through interdisciplinary activities in the arts. Known as A World of Discoveries in Art, this experience brings Norfolk’s fourth-grade students to the Museum to participate in guided visits of the galleries, as well as to view performances by the Virginia Stage Company in the Museum’s Kaufman Theatre.
In 2011, the Norfolk Society of Arts generously provided funds for transportation that ensured that over 2,600 students and teachers joined in A World of Discoveries in Art. The information contained within this unit was originally designed as a poster, received by each student and teacher who participated in the program. Due to the success of the program, we offer A World of Discoveries in Art, both tour and collection information, to all our visitors. A PowerPoint presentation with Educator Notes accompanies this unit.
