Time to Play is a family-friendly exhibition of works by local and international artists that incorporates both visual objects and immersive art to encourage forms of play through education and creativity. From Modernist kinder play to current methods of virtual gaming, visitors are welcome to observe and relate to contemporary art through a dynamic lens.
Beginning in the main gallery, visitors will encounter a conceptual playground with Froebel block-inspired paintings by Zsofia Schweger; brightly colored large-scale constructions by Chris Bogia; abstract tennis works on paper by Maria Molteni; handcrafted basketball hoops by The New Craft Artists in Action (NCAA); and a newly commissioned LEGOâ brick basketball sculpture by Nathan Sawaya. The exhibition continues with an immersive site-specific installation by Jen Clay; gaming video and paintings by Leo Castañeda; and hybrid video-art games by Samuel Lopez
In addition, the Center has launched the #ACCHBRICKARTCHALLENGE, available on our social media platforms. Inspired by the brick constructions of Nathan Sawaya, we are inviting participants to submit their own LEGO brick constructions online. Participants are welcome to take a photo of their own creations, upload it to Instagram or Facebook, and make sure to tag us and use the hashtag #ACCHBRICKARTCHALLENGE.
We will select and repost creations on our social media sites. One grand prize winner will be selected to receive a $150 Friend-Level North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) membership, which provides free admission for one year to more than 1,000 art museums and galleries, historical museums and societies, botanical gardens, children’s museums, zoos and more in the United States, Canada, Bermuda, El Salvador and Mexico.
Submissions will only be accepted through the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood’s Facebook page or Instagram @artandculturecenter. All works must be original! Please do not use kits for your own creations. Contest runs through August 16, 2020. The grand prize winner will be announced on August 20, 2020.
