For many Museum visitors, The Gallery display will be their first art-viewing experience. The artwork is creatively arranged in a small space and paired with simple signs that help develop ‘looking skills’ and spark conversation.

Featuring the works of 16 local artists, The Yellow Show opens at Boston Children's Museum on April 24, 2010. Typically playful and diverse, this exhibit includes digital media, large-scale sculpture, paintings, drawings, and a mobile.
Boston's most unexpected art gallery resides between a workshop where kids are sawing away at wood blocks and an exhibit where families are spinning tops. "The Gallery" at Boston Children's Museum is hosting its 16th show since 2007 featuring the works of 16 local artists showcasing their "yellowy" best in The Yellow Show. Almost half of this juried show's featured artists are from the Fort Point Artists' Community. The Museum meets its mission of helping families to understand and enjoy the world around them by bringing the resources of the neighborhood inside for a closer look.
"For many Museum visitors, The Gallery display will be their first art-viewing experience," said Bridget Matros, the Museum's Arts Program manager and featured artist. "The artwork is creatively arranged in a small space and paired with simple signs that help develop 'looking skills' and spark conversation."
The Yellow Show pieces are on view April 24 – June 20 and compliments the Museum's current traveling exhibit "Curious George™: Let's Get Curious!."
