While there are so many things to do around Longview during the summer, including fun outdoor activities to keep your child moving, there are also many other activities to keep your child’s brain active during the summer as well. One of the first things on our list for educational summer fun is spending a day at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts. From viewing the latest exhibit to attending their various art classes, this local museum provides the perfect destination for a summer afternoon with the kids.
Current Exhibit: JD Miller & Lea Fisher
From July 10 until September 22, you can see the latest exhibit from well-known Reflectionism artists, JD Miller and Lea Fisher. These beautiful works of art will be on display for Longview Museumgoers to see, allowing you to learn more about this unique style of art. Not exactly sure what Reflectionism is? Well, defined by JD Miller, Reflectionism is “following the law of attraction and translating that experience into art on the canvas.” By using a multi-dimensional oil application, Miller desires to give viewers the chance to go on a journey while simply looking at the painting.
