Let's Explore Backpack

The Museum’s distinct Let’s Explore Backpacks offer activity-filled ways for children (ages 5-12) and adult companions to explore together the outdoor sculpture collection on the University’s beautiful campus. Children then create their own works of art to take home. Various backpack themes are available. All backpack activities are FREE! | more |


The Great Art Caper

Children and adult companions uncover clues to help solve an Art Caper mystery in the outdoor sculpture collection on Hofstra University’s South Campus. Children become detectives and have fun while discovering more about these works. Pick up all backpack and caper activity materials at the Emily Lowe Gallery during open hours year-round until 3 p.m. Return all backpacks by 4 p.m. and keep your completed works of art.
