Pyramids, Ziggurats, and Skyscrapers, Oh My!
May 7, 2017 at 1:00 pm–3:00 pmFree
Join us for an exhilarating, mind-bending, and amusing afternoon for all ages as we puzzle through Sol LeWitt’s conceptual art-making process and together make a mega city in the Sculpture Park. Using LeWitt’s “Tower (DC)” cement block sculpture as inspiration, we will build pyramids, ziggurats, and skyscrapers scaling up child’s play to as high as the tallest person can reach. While designing and building, we will get an inside look into one of the 20th century’s greatest artistic minds.
Cardboard boxes will abound as we create a super-sized stacked city bridging cultures and times. Architects from BSA Space (Boston Society of Architects) will lead a sculpture park challenge with their extraordinary LEGO® collection. Your math and collaboration skills will combine forces to create playful formulas and design directions for structures that others will build.
We will build rain or shine.
Free with museum admission.
