Big Art: Miniature Golf


Dates:
Wed Jul 18, 2012 10:00 - Sun Oct 07, 2012

Bring along your lucky putter July 19 through October 14 into a fully-playable miniature golf course. Designed by artists from across the United States, Big Art: Miniature Golf is a unique exhibition that explores the fusion between art, design and play.

Visitors will see – and play on – a diverse selection of artist-created miniature golf holes (clubs provided), ranging from an orbit around the Sun and into a black hole, playing inside an enormous golf hole cup, a surrealist pinball hole, to the world’s smallest version of the world’s largest miniature golf course.

Each hole offers a one-of-a-kind experience for all visitors, be they golf lovers, art lovers, or both. Big Art: Miniature Golf promises a singular survey of some of the most whimsical and playful American artists working today.
