Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000 (on view through November 5, 2012), MoMA Studio: Common Senses is a multisensory environment at the intersection of education, design, and art that aims to foster our evolving relationships with nature, technology, and our everyday surroundings through community interactions and creative play. A series of drop-in activities, workshops, and ongoing projects for audiences of all ages creates an interactive learning environment that integrates components such as light, nature and food, textiles, games, and technology.
Artists, designers, and educators, including Fritz Haeg, J. Morgan Puett of Mildred's Lane and The Mildred Complex(ity), and Karen Hewitt of Learning Materials Workshop, the organization Reggio Children, and others, engage visitors in generative and sensory experiences, from harvesting an edible garden and creating light-based landscapes to engaging with the practices of an experimental school and playing with new and familiar toys and games.
Programs are free, with participation on a first-come, first-served basis. The Studio is open to all ages, and children must be accompanied by an adult.
