MUSEUM DOG! is a video series that highlights artists and exhibitions featured at New Bedford Art Museum and around the city. In each episode, a Labrador Retriever named Museum Dog and his friends Creative Canine and Bark Ranger introduce viewers to elements and principles of design such as texture or color. Each episode encourages viewers to identify design elements in artworks presented by Museum Dog, and apply them to an at-home activity using accessible materials.

More ways to take Museum Dog home with you! We have a variety of coloring pages featuring Museum Dog and his pals. Download, print, color, and show off what you made on Instagram. Don’t forget to tag us – @nbam_aw
