The Museum's makerspace

The Rosso Family Foundation Innovators LAB is our collaborative makerspace where we work with local artists and experts from various fields to create a design challenge to nurture creativity, problem solving, skill building and learning.

What sets the Innovators LAB apart from other makerspaces is the inclusion of resident professionals which include artists, architects, engineers and others. These resident professionals develop design challenges alongside our Creative Team to provide open-ended, skill-building projects that explore real world issues. The Innovators LAB targets families with children ages 6-13 and provides opportunities to experiment with a variety of ideas, materials and hands-on techniques.

Painted Object Design Challenge

Wed-Mon (Jan.11-Feb.13)
10:30am + 2:30pm

Help us design our new Painted Object! This spring we’re replacing the painted Flower Truck in Paint Studio with a new life-size sculpture created by artists Marisol Rendón and Ingram Ober, and designed by kids! Through this design challenge, kids will use their imagination to draw and build a model sculpture out of recycled materials. We’ll then choose one child’s design to be our next Painted Object!

Open Making

9-10am + 1-2pm

Think, play and create with us! Discover your own making experience and bring ideas to life using a range of art materials, textiles, tools and more.
