in partnership with the Contemporary Arts Center
A project of the 2005 ArtWorks Summer Program
ArtWorks Apprentices and Lead Artist Eric Brass developed an interactive sensory sculpture for any audience, but geared especially to sight- and hearing-impaired children. The project encourages all viewers to discover art through each of their senses. The end product is a large, colorfully quilted elephant sculpture. The elephant's body is made up of many drawers that, when opened, offer a multitude of sensory sensations. Open the wind drawer and feel the breeze. Open other drawers hear singing and the ocean, run your hand against beads or listen for footsteps. What else can you feel or hear when you open the drawers?
