2009 Summer Program

Before there were museums, a lucky few people had Cabinets of Curiosities (in Europe: Wunderkammer) in which they collected treasures of natural history and art. Construct a chest. Fill it with animals you’ve created guided by great artists: a lion after Calder, a horse after Chagall, a giraffe after Brancusi, a sheep after Moore, a camel after Klee. Collect wondrous ways to see and capture the world.
