SUMMARY

Explore sound as you swing, slide and play on Playground, an interactive sound sculpture installation, curated by Ellen Reid. On selected dates and times, take part in open recess on Playground, and then watch as the resonant art sculpture comes to life for Run, a 15-minute original composition for voice and devised playground instruments, featuring ONE Festival soloist Naomi Louisa O’Connell and International Contemporary Ensemble artists. Join us in the contemporary wing of the Joslyn Art Museum for the world-premiere debut of Ellen Reid’s Playground. This one-of-a-kind transformative experience will be free and open to museum guests of all ages during gallery hours.
