From October 10, 2013 to August 31, 2014, visitors to The Museum of Modern Art can visit its latest Art Lab installation, which focuses on movement. Located on the first floor of the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, MoMA Art Labs are designed to offer children and families an immersive experience during their Museum visit.

Now in its sixth year, each Lab installation features a different theme, with activities set up throughout the space that facilitate a deeper relationship between the visitor and the concepts of modern art. We’re extremely proud to say that Boinx’s iStopMotion for iPad plays a role in MoMA Art Lab: Movement. One of a variety of activities in the Lab, iStopMotion for iPad – and stop motion animation in general – enables visitors to experiment with the act of moving objects to create a short film. Other activities featured in the Lab allow visitors to experiment with performance art, discover the gestures artists make when creating art, play with balance while making a mobile, and much more.

MoMA Art Lab: Movement is a great place for kids to explore their creative side and learn more about different ways artists can represent movement in art, design, and film. We strongly encourage everyone out there to visit the Lab and try their hand at some stop motion animation. MoMA Art Lab is open Saturday through Thursday from 10:30am to 4:30pm, and Fridays from 10:30am to 6:30pm. Learn more about MoMA Art Lab: Movement here.
