Mr. Roboto Curator Walk-Through and MakeArt Activations at MCD

June 8 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On June 8th, experience MCD’s Mr. Roboto like never before!

1-2pm: Curator Walk-Through with Guest Curator Eleanor Pries

12-4pm: Hands on MakeArt activations inspired by Mr. Roboto

SF Design Week comes to the Museum of Craft and Design! Join us as we celebrate the final month of Mr. Roboto with a deep dive into the exhibition and drop-in activations inspired by the four types of art collaboratively created by San José State University (SJSU) students and the robotic arm – live in the gallery!

See the exhibition through curatorial eyes.  Guest curator Eleanor Pries facilitates a curator walk-through of Mr. Roboto from 1-2pm. Eleanor contextualizes the works on display and speaks to the creative practices of SJSU student cohorts, all of whom found unique ways to work with the robot and integrate this human-machine collaboration into their projects.

Swing by the museum between 12-4pm for Mr. Roboto-inspired activations. Try your hand at Jojo Liu’s Cobot (Collaborative Robot) Calligraphy, interpret robot art from a human perspective with Rae Lanzerotti’s MakeArt project, make light rays tangible with glow-in-the-dark art, and recreate the ‘taxidermy’ puppets for your own rendition of Roadkill Jamboree.
Don’t miss MCD’s Design Week event! See Mr. Roboto through Eleanor’s eyes and craft to connect with robots and people alike before picking up a FREE take-home MakeArt Kit.
