Interactive Art: Charles Long's 100 Pounds of Clay

Charles Long's 100 Pounds of Clay  at the Orange County Museum of Art encourages everyone to become part of the exhibit and provides interactive fun for the whole family.
This spring, the Orange County Museum of Art presents 100 Pounds of Clay, an interactive installation by sculptor Charles Long (b. 1958). Originally presented at OCMA in 2001 and brought back again in 2006, this popular artwork begins its life as a minimalist sculpture made up of 100 one-pound blocks of perfectly formed, brightly-hued modeling clay, and subsequently evolves through sculptures created by museum visitors. Visitors are invited to mold, sculpt, and play with the blocks of clay, obliterating the “don’t touch” taboo of museum artwork.

If you are looking for something to do with the kids and happen to be in Southern California this summer the exhibit is on display until September of 2010.
