Movies like The Day After Tomorrow, Twister, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs are a testament to mankind’s obsession with extreme weather -- even if the details are a little exaggerated. But, really, who wouldn’t want it to rain pizza? "Weather or Not: Art with Atmosphere" showcases the beauty and power of weather phenomena through workshops and an exhibit at Arizona Museum for Youth. Families are encouraged to create their own tornadoes and explore the glow-in-the-dark Weather Room, which recreates lightning storms with realistic light and sound effects. Children between two and five years old can register for classes about the art of making mud pies, painting with ice, and creating wall-mounted snowflakes.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sundays, 12-4 p.m. Starts: Feb. 8. Continues through May 26, 2013
