Paint our Flower Truck!

The “Painted Object” is a vintage 1950s Dodge pickup truck, affectionately named Flower Truck. A Museum favorite since the early 90’s, the “Painted Object” serves as a canvas for children (and adults) to express themselves through paint.

Thank you to our Flower Truck underwriters: Shawna and Scott Biel, Lauren Lee Beaudry, Dee Anne and Michael Canepa, and Rachel and Ed Walter.

Paint Studio is subject to closure on rainy days or weather permitting.
