Over Hear and Here: A Centennial Reinvention Exhibit Opens at Boston Children’s Museum
Date:7/9/2013

Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Boston Children’s Museum announced today that Over Hear and Here: A Centennial Reinvention exhibit recently opened as part of the Museum’s 100th birthday celebration.

The exhibit is an interactive collaboration with Boston Children’s Museum and multidisciplinary sound artist Crank Sturgeon. Over Hear and Here explores the ideas of place and technology using multimedia. Through workshops and direct collaboration with Museum visitors, the exhibit will accumulate as a growing artwork, using sound and visuals to investigate personal and playful interpretations of place, time, and art.

“This show is about breaking new ground, about the future, about art as an interactive living thing, not just something hanging on a wall,” said Alice Vogler, Arts Program Manager. “One of the goals is to expand the idea of what art is or isn't and to help kids connect the process of art making and planning as it grows and develops into an art exhibit. The process – from beginning to end – revealed! Another goal is to break down barriers between the audience or viewers and the artist.”

Experimental conceptualist Crank Sturgeon has been creating sonic and visual concepts since the early 1990's. Sturgeon takes found objects, visuals, and anything that can make a sound and adapts them into a hands-on, interactive exploration that is as engaging as it is fun to hear.

“This show is as much for the adults as it is for the kids! I am infusing contact microphones, recorded and live sound, and video in this exhibit. These elements will be growing, changing, and mutating during the duration of the show,” said Sturgeon. “One of the walls in the gallery is going to be used to display the 'process'. The process will be displayed in the form of drawings, writings, and sketches done by me, Museum staff and visitors.”

Meet-the-artist events and workshops will take place in The Gallery at Boston Children’s Museum July 22-24, August 18-20, and September 15-17. Museum visitors will be able to create things in the Art Studio that will be directly added to the installation, make contact microphones, or participate in Invention Workshop, where whatever is made will be immediately installed in the exhibit. Each time Sturgeon is at the Museum, a new element will be installed, changed, shifted. One of the walls is a brainstorming/process wall where drawings and writings done by Sturgeon and visitors will be added – directly to the wall using gel medium!

Over Hear and Here: A Centennial Reinvention will be open 100 days through October 6, 2013.

The Museum’s centennial events will take place throughout 2013 with celebrations in the Museum and community focusing on issues in early childhood development.
