Extravagant Properties: Line, Shape, and Color - Providence Children's Museum

*The event has already taken place on this date: Thu, 09/12/2019
Providence artist Nick Carter, in collaboration with the Museum's Exhibits Team, has created ‘Extravagant Properties: Line, Shape, and Color’. The environment explores geometry through the 2D and 3D worlds of points and lines in space. Little visitors and grownups will delight as they play with light, color, and patterns, taking charge and making their own designs.
A series of hands-on workshops, complementing the theme of each exhibit, will give little innovators a chance to peek behind the curtain of real-world creative thinking and explore, ask questions, and find their own answers in the Museum’s new, hands-on Innovation Lab and Maker Studio. Children and their grownups will use authentic tools and materials, while trained Museum staff ensure a rich problem-solving experience. Professional creatives will also drop in for demonstrations and how-to sessions.

After three years of planning, research and ‘kid-testing’, Providence Children’s Museum is set to launch its Creativity Initiative, with dedicated new exhibit space and high-quality maker experiences designed to spark creativity in the community and inspire Rhode Island’s kids to be innovators in the 21st century. The exhibit will be on display from August 13, 2019 through September 23, 2019.
