About the Program
Experiment with sound as a material through hands-on making and explorations of the space around us. How might we hear with our eyes? What might the color blue sound like? Families and visitors of all ages create abstract compositions and discover new ways of listening based on chance operations with artist educator Audra Wolowiec.

Audra Wolowiec
Audra Wolowiec is an interdisciplinary artist whose work oscillates between sculpture, installation, text, and performance with an emphasis on sound and the material qualities of language. Her work has been shown internationally and in the United States at MASS MoCA, Socrates Sculpture Park, and Art in General. She was the inaugural Artist Educator in Residence at Dia:Beacon and has lectured at SUNY Purchase and Parsons School of Design. She is based between New York City and Detroit.
