Playtime in the Making
May 19 – Sep 16 at Fuller Craft Museum
Playtime in the Making is a large-scale art installation that speaks to the value of “play” in creativity. Produced by a team of four artists – Tommy Simpson, Karen LaFleur, Nancy Tucker, and Marlow Shami – the project’s intent is to honor “play” as a vital partner in the creative thinking process by guiding the visitor through the four stages of creativity in a “the more you look, the more you see” puzzle. The installation will include furniture, textiles, laser/router work, as well as hand-carvings, writing, animation, original music, and documentary film. Fuller Craft Museum will be the inaugural venue of this traveling exhibition. In conjunction with Playtime in the Making, renowned Tiny House builder Deek Diedricksen will be constructing an indoor playground in an adjacent gallery.
