Making Art with Living Systems: The Exploratorium, Behind the Scenes

Denise King, Artist and Exhibit Development Manager, the Exploratorium

Take a peek behind the scenes of San Francisco's hottest new exhibit space. After years by the Palace of Fine Arts, the Exploratorium recently revealed its exciting new digs along San Francisco's waterfront. King will lead us on a tour of the shops and lab where she does her development work for the Exploratorium's special exhibits. She will focus on how she builds life support systems into her exhibits, incorporating live plants and organisms, and well as the difference between exhibits and artwork. The tour is limited to 20 people.
