When children approach artwork created by adults, they are expected to look, not touch. What if instead, they were allowed to play with, and even to transform what they see? What if they didn’t realize the material they were engaging was intended as “art”?

Loose Parts is part of a series of projects by artist Corin Hewitt that explore and activate the open-ended character of children’s play. VCU’s Institute for Contemporary Art will host screenings, presentations, and a panel on art and adventure play.

This event is made possible in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities.

Free, but RSVP is required.

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
