Children are encouraged to crawl and directly engage with a vibrant installation by artist Shinique Smith. They encourage small visitors to think about our inter-connectivity as humans, our role in waste production, and our relationship to this planet. Smith has constructed a fun-filled place for children to independently problem solve by connecting and playing with others while navigating this intricate exhibition. The installation incorporates low doorways, secret corners, and a reading nook filled with a selection of children’s stories, curated by the artist, to bolster the ideas anchoring this show. During the exhibition’s run, the Museum will host a series of storytelling and art-making activities inspired by Smith’s work. The exhibition is free with admission, admission is $7 for adults, $4 for Youth ages 9 to 17, and free for children 8 and under.
