Unboxed: Adventures in Cardboard at the Chicago Children's Museum

Unboxed: Adventures in Cardboard at the Chicago Children's Museum
Last Thursday I had the chance to see my work installed in the Unboxed: Adventures in Cardboard exhibit at the Chicago Children's Museum.  Really, I think that the word "exhibit" fails to capture just how interactive and dynamic Unboxed is.

There is a wonderfully detailed mural made of cardboard by a Chicago based artist.  You really need to see it in person to appreciate it.

And here's Composition in Primaries on the wall of the cardboard studio, safely enclosed in plexiglass so the children can get a good look at it without touching it.  Unboxed is designed for kids to play and create their own artwork and toys with cardboard boxes.

The show runs until May 2013, and I will be teaching two weekend workshops there in April.  For more information on the museum's hours and admission prices, click here.
