Pyramids, Ziggurats, and Skyscrapers

A special all-ages program in partnership with the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum for ArtWeek Boston.

BSA Space partners with the deCordova for an exhilarating, mind-bending, and amusing afternoon for all ages using Sol LeWitt’s conceptual art-making process in the sculpture park. With LeWitt’s Tower (DC) cement block sculpture as inspiration, participants will build pyramids, ziggurats, and skyscrapers scaling up child’s play to as high as the tallest person can reach. Cardboard boxes will make up a super-sized stacked city bridging cultures and times. Architects from BSA Space will lead participants through a sculpture park challenge with an extraordinary LEGO® collection. Your math and collaboration skills will combine to create playful formulas and design directions for structures that others will build.

This is a drop-in event and registration is not necessary. Families may show up at any point between 1:00 and 3:00 pm.

This is a program of the BSA Foundation.
