Mash-up Menagerie at The Long Island Children's Museum
Walk through the mouth of a whion (whale + lion), slide down an elester (elephant + rooster) and manipulate the legs and eyes of an octomoose (octopus + moose)in this summer exhibit devoted to creativity and imagination. Join artist-in-residence Scott Larrabee in a summer of creative collaboration. Visitors are confronted with the frames of mixed-up animals and challenged to help finish these fantastical beasts. What type of hide would these hybrid creatures have? Should their coloring be neon bright or camouflage? Over the course of eight weeks, animals evolve through visitors’ imagination and design ingenuity. Families are encouraged to return throughout the summer to contribute to the growth of the Museum’s mapcap menagerie and watch the changes these creatures undergo on a daily basis.
