New Exhibits Celebrate Art and Literature
Jump inside paintings and experience children’s books come to life.

Manhattan, Kan. – The Flint Hills Discovery Center (FHDC) invites the community to visit two new temporary exhibits opening Saturday, January 26. Framed: Step into Art™ and Storyland! highlight the importance of art and literature using interactive components and life-size displays.

Both exhibits will be open to the public from January 26 through May 12. Each will be offered in the English and Spanish language.

Framed: Step into Art™ was created by Minnesota Children’s Museum. This exhibit allows you to immerse yourself into different paintings and gain a newfound appreciation for the artists who created them. Conversational prompts are used to spark thoughtful conversations and connections.

Experience your favorite children’s books come to life in Storyland! Life-size scenes from popular children’s novels will allow visitors to feel as though they are in the story itself. This exhibit showcases the importance of reading through rhyming, poetry, storytelling and other activities.

The FHDC will offer public programs that focus around and expand on the topics within the exhibits. Behind the Exhibit lectures, Tallgrass Tour Buses and Storytelling Saturday are a few of the programs that will be held throughout the duration of the exhibits.

For exhibit details and a schedule of accompanying public programming, visit www.flinthillsdiscovery.org/framed-storyland, call (785) 587-2726 or visit 315 S. 3rd St. in Manhattan.
