The Right Brain Initiative


Last chance! Show + Tell at the Portland Children’s Museum

September 30th, 2010 by Right Brain Team

Two weeks ago, the staff at the Portland Children’s Museum graciously carved out a space on their front patio for our traveling exhibit Show + Tell. The exhibit will be at the Museum through the weekend, then it’s off to the North Clackamas Schools building in Milwaukie. If you haven’t caught the exhibit yet—or haven’t caught it lately—we recommend visiting PCM tomorrow from 4-8pm during the Museum’s Target Free First Friday, when admission is on the house. You can also catch them open 9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.

The Children’s Museum is also on our roster of artists. That means they collaborate with Right Brain partner schools to design and implement creative learning experiences for students. In our exhibit, we’re pleased to share alluring images of PCM’s work last year with kindergartners at Rigler K-8 School. (You can also see those images—and many more—posted on our Flickr page.)

…And, we might add that when you get to the exhibit, you’ll also see the Science of Sleep-ish felt clouds (below) that we just installed and feel awfully proud of. Let us know what you think!
