Tough Art 2018 at Pittsburgh Children’s Museum (Pennsylvania)

On exhibit through January 2019.

This innovative artist residency program challenges artists and audiences to rethink their ideas of interactive museum experiences in one of the toughest venues – a children’s museum.

Tough Art 2018 Artists are:

Isaac Levine, Lake Light
Lake Light is a kinetic sculpture that uses LED lights and ping pong balls propelled back and forth by fans to simulate the lights and sounds of moonlight bouncing on lake water. See new things in repetitive patterns!

Miranda Miller and Lumi Barron, Light Showers
Inspired by the joy of finding rainbows in the spray from a garden hose, Light Showers encourages visitors to create their own mist fall and discover the hidden rainbows that float within it.

Neil Mendoza, Mechanical Masterpieces
Mechanical Masterpieces is a gallery of classical art reimagined for the 21st century. Viewers can poke, switch, disco, inflate and water paintings to their heart’s content.
