Specially curated with our younger visitors in mind, PLAY is an exhibition of playful, vibrant and humorous works from the Wallace Arts Trust Collection. Quirky personalities such as Richard Maloy’s friendly Blue Dog II are gathered here, alongside works that will remind older visitors of playing imaginatively with simple toys and materials as children. An exhibition to inspire the playful child in all of us, PLAY seeks to ignite the imaginations of visitors young and old.
Children may sit on Philip Trusttum's floor rug Fold Up Doll and read the picture books provided: Pat Hanly's Blast, Stanley Palmer's To the Harbour, and Let's Get Art, featuring the Te Papa Collection, by Brad Irwin.
A July School Holidays Quiz is available from Reception for this exhibition.
