FAMILY PROGRAM: Build it! Chair Design Art Challenge

Join us as we get inspired by the cardboard Frank Gehry chair on display in the Art of Seating exhibition, and use recycled materials to build our own artistic chair designs.

Join us for a design challenge that will exercise both your artistic and engineering skills!  Participants will be tasked with creating unique miniature chairs out of a variety of exciting materials like sculpture wire, wooden shapes, cardboard, and chenille stems.

At the end of our timed building session we’ll step back and admire all of the unique chair forms created, and share our observations on their constructions.

Visitors are welcome to join us on their own, or build with a team.

Free with museum admission
