National touring exhibit featuring Blue Man Group opening in Orlando
Saturday, May 25
Blue Man Groupâ€”Making Waves, the national touring exhibit supported by Harman/Becker Automotive Systems, created by the Boston Childrenâ€™s Museum and Blue Man Group, and powered by JBLÂ®, will open at Orlando Science Center on Saturday, May 25. The 1,500-square-foot exhibitâ€”designed to bring together science and artâ€”will take the whole family through a multi-sensory exploration of sound that provides an opportunity to play together while discovering the fun of music.
Onstage, the Blue Man is one-part inquisitive child, one-part trickster and one-part superhero on a journey of discovery. Throughout Blue Man Groupâ€”Making Waves, families are encouraged to learn, play and explore with the same curiosity as these renowned performing artists.
Co-founder of Blue Man Group Chris Wink says, â€śAfter years of being able to express ourselves creatively on stage, it has become increasingly important to us to develop experiences that encourage and expand the creative development of othersâ€”particularly children and their parents. Weâ€™re very excited to see this exhibit come to life with JBL technology, and who better to demonstrate the true value of understanding quality sound than Harman.â€ť
At the Slide-u-lum, Build-u-lum, Sand Drum and Theramin, children will have an opportunity to see, feel and create sound. At the PVC Station, visitors of all ages will have a chance to play the unique Blue Man Group instruments while learning how sound works. The whole experience culminates in the JBLÂ®-equipped Surround Sound Theater where engineering genius combines with a short musical piece by Blue Man Group to illustrate the elements of sound.
On select dates during the summer, the Blue Man Group will make appearances at the Science Center including interacting with guests in the exhibit, conducting paint and music workshops, and hosting a homemade instrument contest. Details to be released at a later date.
The exhibit will be at Orlando Science Center through the summer.
