Making a Maquette

Within the museum’s current special exhibition, Continuum: The Art of Michael Dunbar in the Sculptural Tradition, guests are invited to create models similar to the process Michael Dunbar uses before constructing his sculptures. Styrofoam, cardboard cutouts, foam shapes, and more are assembled and then using mathematical tools such as protractors and compasses, tinkerers do a drawing to illustrate the components. The finished maquettes (small models of sculpture) are placed on display in the educational space of the exhibition. Visit the museum before December 22nd to make your own model!
