  • Izzy represents the creativity part in us. She is always experimenting and creating new art. Creativity amplifies our vision of the world and our lives. It provides a place for the imagination, and thus a place to escape from reality.
  • Tyler represents a more intellectual side of our experience in the museum. He enjoys thinking and deeply analyzing art. Art is an intellectual experience too. It challenges us to think and interpret the way artists communicate through their art so we can take something from it as well.
  • Emi represents our emotions. He enjoys his day quietly while looking at art pieces. Our emotions affect how we live and think, and they have an impact on how we experience art in a museum. Our emotions matter in the way we interpret art pieces because it is an experience that comes within ourselves and thus informs our perception too.
  • Liza represents our body. She is always dancing and moving her body around. We bring our bodies into the museum, but what happens when we have to stay at home? We forget to move our bodies, and that causes problems to our health. In Liza’s mind, art can inspire us to move our bodies both at home and in the museum.
