Summer Themes

Ruth Root

Repeat after us: there are patterns aplenty at the museum! Step through our collection using a guide created by pattern-obsessed artist Ruth Root. Draw, laugh, and discover something new. Then, create a button showcasing your new expertise in our collection and wear it home.
