MoMA Studio: Common Senses

The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Mezzanine

Open daily Wednesday through Monday 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000 (July 27–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 integrates components such as light, nature, food, textiles, games, and technology. Artists, designers, and educators including Fritz Haeg, J. Morgan Puett of Mildred's Lane and The Mildred Complex(ity), Karen Hewitt, Reggio Children, and others engage visitors in generative and sensory experiences from harvesting an edible garden and creating light-based scapes installations to engaging with an experimental school and playing with new and familiar toys and games.
