Participation in the project is free as are demonstrations that will include presentations from DBA Arcade Cabinets, Nerdy Derby, and Gerb’s Garage. Attendees may also sign-up for one of the rotating slate of 45-minute workshops. Scheduled workshops with Beam Center faculty will explore the NATURAL MACHINERY theme: Color Wheels (Elizabeth Hurst), Omnivorous Plants (Jaimie Warren), Balancing Sculptures (Brett Van Aalsburg), Wooden Snakes (Mitchell Dose) and more.
