Imagination meets interactivity in our newest sculpture experience, Inside/Outside: An Interactive Sculpture Experience for Families. Each of the eight educational stations includes a hands-on activity that underscores the main concept of the featured sculpture.

  • Experience kinetic sculpture by moving a unique inspiration of George Rickey's Four Open Squares Horizontal Gyratory-Tapered using your own strength as wind power.
  • Create representations of Joan Miró's Woman and Bird using selected recognizable found objects and magnets to personalize your work.
  • Turn panels to create "shape designs" á la Louise Nevelson's Atmosphere and Environment XI.
  • Use your imagination as you sit in an armchair similar to George Segal's Woman in Armchair, select your favorite backdrop to "become" the sculpture itself.
  • Activity cards challenge kids to partner with their parents and tackle activities inside the exhibition space and outdoors, too.

Even the flooring in this exhibition is interactive! As you explore the space, note the digitally-printed carpeting that includes a meandering pathway through all four seasons and dozens of hidden images. Further defining the path will be photographic panels emphasizing the horticultural setting of each sculpture.

Inside/Outside: An Interactive Sculpture Experience for Families is yet another way that we encourage children to bond with sculpture and foster a lifelong enjoyment of the arts.
