With great fanfare during the “Grand Reopening” celebrations, the Museum of Arts and Sciences relaunched its distinctive Discovery House, the interactive museum for children, which offers new excitement for Kids of All Ages!
The area was closed for almost three months while new exhibits were being installed and existing stations updated.
Visitors are greeted at the entrance by Ziggy, the Museum’s 40 million-year-old whale fossil, and the “Gesturing Woman” by Viola Frey, scholar and artist known for her larger-than-life, colorfully glazed clay sculptures.
Once you’re past Ziggy, “Gesturing Woman,” and the Polar Bear in the main floor’s Parlor, a ride on the elevator opens up entirely new experiences.
The 11th Annual Protégé Competition and Exhibition, which features works by high school students from Central Georgia at the Museum of Arts and Sciences, opens with an Awards Reception on Saturday, March 28, 2014.

The Protégé Competition and Exhibition is an important opportunity for students who will be preparing portfolios for admittance to art schools or developing their professional skills for future employment.
