What is creativity? Can it be taught? Explore the key elements of creativity through objects in the GMD collection and a series of activities that will build the exhibition as it progresses. Classes in creativity will develop and add to this exhibition throughout its run.

All GMD programming is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support Grant, thanks to legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
