The Arlington Heights Memorial Library on Saturday opens a hands-on exhibit inspired by the works of artist Marc Chagall.

Chagall for Children, an interactive exhibit located in the library's Kids' World section, will give visitors the opportunity to create mosaics, weave tapestries, use touch screens to digitally alter Chagall's masterpieces, create flower arrangements, conduct symphonies and insert themselves into one of his paintings. The exhibit features 14 reproductions of Chagall's work such as the famous "America Windows," "I" and the "Village and Green Violinist."

The installation, which was created by Kohl Children's Museum, is supported by the Friends of the Library. It runs through April 7. For more details, visit ahml.info/chagall.
