The Art of Tinkering 2022

The Art of Tinkering 2022

Now–September 5

Slow down—humans at play! This summer, dive into the joy of tinkering with artworks, contraptions, exhibits, and experiences for all ages. Sculpt with light and shadow, build (and break) circuits, and compose music from junk. See familiar things used in unfamiliar ways with creations by Natasha Dzurny, Junior Fritz Jacquet, Diane Landry, Golan Levin, Reuben Margolin, Tosa Novmichi, Jie Qi, Scott Weaver, and Daniel Wurtzel. Follow your own imagination—and enjoy the creativity we all share.
