For International Museum Day on May 18, the i.d.e.a. Museum staff answered why they love art.

We hope you, too, will share why you love art.

And, please send us pics of your art creations you are making at home while we are temporarily closed. We hope to see the wonderful art you are making! We miss you!

Finally, if you can, email us your creations or tag us on social media – @ideaMuseum on Facebook and @ideaMuseumMesa on Twitter and Instagram. We hope to show off a few, if you don’t mind.
