Description: Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000 (July 27-Nov. 5, 2012), MoMA Studio: Common Senses is a multi-sensory environment at the intersection of education, design, and art that aims to foster a child's evolving relationships with nature, technology, and everyday surroundings through community interactions and creative play. A series of drop-in activities, workshops, and ongoing projects for audiences of all ages integrates components such as light, nature, food, textiles, games, and technology. Artists, designers, and educators including Fritz Haeg, J. Morgan Puett, Karen Hewitt, Reggio Children, and others engage visitors in generative and sensory experiences, from harvesting an edible garden and hand-weaving rugs to creating light-based scapes and playing familiar and new games.
