Summer Camp Tours


Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: Transportation Designs from the Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection

During the mid-20th century, transportation kept pace with the increasing speed of life. This exhibition features conceptual designs, industrial models, toy planes, trains, and automobiles as well as colorful posters, TV and film clips, and newsreels that capture the excitement that accompanied getting from one place to another. Also highlighted are the designers who created the look of the 20th-century vehicles that transported us and transformed the way we travel.

Campers will enjoy a 40 minute tour of the marvels of transportation from yesteryear, then participate in a 40 minute  hands-on art project that allows them to use their creativity and imagination. This program is designed for children ages 5-13, and offered at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Tuesday through Friday from June 30 through Aug. 7, 2015. Each session is limited to 40 campers.  One chaperone per 10 campers is mandatory.
