Celebrate Art Museum Day at Cantor Arts Center on Monday, May 18

Little artists easily love exploring around Cantor Arts Center anytime of the year, but especially on Art Museum Day when the museum is stocked with some of the greatest international art for roaming, exploring and dreaming. With more than 24 galleries filled to the brim with art from around the globe, and another 14 special exhibitions, kids of all ages are going to love coming to the Cantor Arts Center this May. As a special addition to the celebration, which will host guests during normal business hours from 11am until 5pm, the Stanford University campus museum is also offering special art packs filled with colored pencils and sketching pads to let your creative mind wander. Find inspiration in every room in the building, or maybe outside at the renowned Rodin Sculpture Garden, and create your own masterpiece that's all yours to keep at the end of your Art Museum Day exploration. The Cantor Arts Center, just off Palm Drive at Museum Way, is part of Stanford University and was created in tandem with the acclaimed university. In fact, the Stanford family really catapulted the museum's international art collection through their own interests and travels, creating a unique space that has been open to the public since 1894. With collections from the Stanford family's own personal collection, as well as famous pieces from Europe & America, Africa, Oceania, Native Americas, Asia and more modern pieces, it's an exploration of time and diversity. Plus, on display for the Art Museum Day 2015 is a special exhibition from SFMOMA, "Pop Art from the Anderson Collection," featuring 10 pieces like Andy Warhol's 1967 self-portrait and Robert Indian's 1973 Love, all for your special viewing pleasure. So start sharpening your pencils and bring along some creativity for Cantor Art Museum's Art Museum Day 2015 on May 18.
