A Rochester Art Show That Actually WANTS You To Touch Everything
Ever since I was a young, bratty kid, I've had one major complaint about going to museums or art galleries on field trips - you're not allowed to touch anything!
Fortunately, something pretty cool has come to Rochester that's great news for the child in me: an art show that actually wants you to touch stuff! From now until the end of the year, the Rochester Art Center is hosting the 9th Art(ists) on the Verge exhibition, featuring five up-and-coming Minnesota artists "working experimentally at the intersection of art, technology, and digital culture."
What exactly does that mean? It's basically an interactive art show with pieces that don't become art until you touch it. For example, one piece of artwork has 20 iPads, while other works include a heat-seeking camera with a camouflage quilt, Virtual Reality, motion sensors, and more. Even if you're not super into art, this still looks like a really cool thing to check out.
The exhibition is open from now until December 30th, but this Sunday (October 28th), you can check out an artist panel discussion from 3-5PM. All the info on the show here.
