Move Along and Change Your Place     

Move Along and Change Your Place is a hands-on, participatory exhibit that asks, 'Where do our ideas come from?' We believe that as we move around the world and change our place, we gain new perspectives and with them, new ideas and inspirations. Let's move around our world and explore together. This exhibit is inspired by the works of  Hervé Tullet.

Activities offered in our multimedia studio for visitors of all ages include: 

  • Explore movement and gesture while watching your performance on a screen
  • Paint a picture to contribute to a growing gallery wall
  • Create collaborative pieces with friends, family, and other visitors
  • Make a soft sculpture while exploring light and texture

*Please note, these activities may be switched with different ones as we prototype new ideas.
