MAKEnight is an amazing event held at the Museum. It is an after-hours event that lets adults (and only adults) play and explore in the Museum. The event has been a huge success over the past couple of months. We decided to make this latest MAKEnight a little bit different from the others.
Typically, we only have attendees explore and create in MAKESHOP and STUDIO. This time, we opened the entire first floor of the Museum for the adults to play in. This included MAKESHOP and STUDIO, along with the Attic which houses our very trippy Gravity Room (no glass bottles allowed).
Adults were also encouraged to climb and launch parachutes in our Garage Workshop. Our Changing Gallery is currently filled with interactive art pieces that invite you to “Move with Art.” There are also several art installations that are fully interactive in the hallway between all of these exhibits. There were a lot things for everyone to play.
It is always a pleasure to watch adults having the same amount of fun as children. The Museum is not just for kids and this night proved it. Ove 150 adults climbed, sewed, painted, slid down slides, and hula hooped throughout the Museum.
It was great fun for everyone involved. Thanks to all who attended and the staff who made this night possible. Our latest MAKEnight was one to remember. The next MAKEnight will be held in July. Please visit our blog for more information.
