Access Day at the DeCordova Museum

,

On a warm day in the summer of 2018 Connection Lab and The Beautiful Stuff Project led an activity at the DeCordova museum and sculpture park as part of Access Day.  The day was designed to invite people with physical and developmental disabilities to enjoy the museum and its grounds.  Our interactive art piece was a wire sculpture of a creature inspired by the Gack in Dr Seuss’ book “There’s a Wocket in My Pocket”.  With big horns and a friendly face, the Gack sat quietly while children and adults decorated it and brought it to life with colored tape and fabric.  We tossed rings at its horns, gave it a face full of personality, and left it at the end of the day to explore the sculpture park and visit with the summer campers.  Some people came back to check on the Gack’s progress throughout the day, and others added a last flourish to his tail or his horns before they left.
