Pablo’s Magical Theater: Now Showing at Young At Art Museum
Within the Young At Art Museum, the GreenScapes Gallery teaches young artists to be change agents. Artist Pablo Cano serves as the inspiration and catalyst for recycled art making in two related spaces: Pablo’s Magical Marionette Theater and Pablo’s STEAM Recycled Workshop. Within the grotto-like theater, children, students and families watch fascinating detailed films of Pablo’s creative process, his ability to transform found and discarded objects into mesmerizing puppets, and a series of classic tales, showcasing Pablo’s puppets found on display.
DuPage Children’s Museum
Having fun should be a given for a project as playful and stimulating as the creation of a children’s museum. Our renovation process presented challenges that were addressed collaboratively, creatively, and with quirky good humor. It’s easy for an architectural firm to tell you that they work collaboratively but with this team, the collaborative process was a reality. ~ Susan Broad, Executive Director, DuPage Children’s Museum
