Explore our Newest Exhibit
“Today is a perfect day to open a new door.” – unknown
Our NEW exhibit – Opportunity Knocks: An Interactive Door Exhibit to Unlock Your Potential – (in partnership with Keller ISD) is an experience in reflection about self.
It is estimated that we make upwards of 35,000 decisions each day. Imagine each decision as a door, leading you someplace different. Opportunity Knocks is an interactive experience, inviting you to reflect on doors that have opened and closed in your life and the journey on which those decisions have taken you.
Here’s how it works:
This FREE exhibit uses doors as a proxy for opportunities in life. The outside of each door is an artistic interpretation of a quote about doors. When the actual door is open, you will discover a reflection question inside based on this quote and several responses to its reflection. This exhibit allows the visitor to reflect on the decisions made in life and the journey they’ve taken you on.
Each visitor will also have an opportunity to use 12 questions to quietly journal and reflect, initiate an exchange with a friend or book club, or serve up tonight at dinner as conversation starters. Register here to check-out the exhibit.
Thanks to the Hudson Foundation, Keller ISD art teachers, and Signarama Grapevine for their partnership and support.
