About the Exhibit:

PLAY!

October 9, 2010 - January 9, 2011

Play!  is designed to allow families, school groups and business professionals to explore how people connect socially through play. The exhibit employs larger-than-life games that invite visitors to become part of the experience.
 
Play! allows visitors to participate in six all-body interactive games and a variety of activity areas.  Each is bilingual (English/Spanish). "Play" emphasizes teamwork, tolerance, dialogue, conflict resolution, participation, compassion and more—all of which are fundamental aspects for relationships that are essential to our lives.
 
Experiences include:
 
·          "The Will of the Group" - balance the importance of individual expression with respect for the will of the group as you become the game pieces on a giant foosball table
·         "The Power of Many" - see how teamwork overcomes challenges in this unique bowling experience, where visitors move together down the alley to achieve different outcomes
·         "The Collective Experience’ - create a musical composition on a giant pool table with a set of nine giant billiard balls, each creating its own musical tone as it moves
 
Other game experiences include an oversized domino set, a musical backgammon board, and a giant die.
 
Play! is organized and produced by Evergreen Exhibitions of San Antonio. Consultants to the exhibition include Eric Harrison Chudler, Ph.D., director of education and outreach at University of Washington, and Marcia Rudy, Ph.D., science writer and program development consultant.
