Our one-of-a-kind, interactive site consists of 12+ installations of ‘musical architecture’ and gives rise to multidisciplinary lessons in art, design, music, STEM, fabrication, and more. We host field trips at our site throughout the year, working with teachers to determine class-specific learning goals. Studio classes and camps are offered seasonally. Customizable Project-based opportunities with our collaborating artists & installations are also available.
