Civilization | SEE SAW, 2017
Seattle-based design practice Civilization has devised an immersive space for children and their families to explore and interact with concepts in art and design. This playful exhibition consists of five activations which correspond to the five design principles: scale, color, type, symbols, and structure. Each station includes a brief description of an iconic artist and graphic designer who has influenced culture and shaped the current state of art and design, along with corresponding activities to encourage curiosity and play. A continuation of the Seattle Art Fair’s commitment to reaching an audience of all ages, this collaboration offers a dynamic activity space for children ages three and up, in a play-based learning environment that engages with artists and ideas.
