Self | Illuminated: Industrial Museum Hosts Groundbreaking Technological Art Exhibit
July 15, 2012 - January 15, 2013
The Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation will host Wayne Strattman, the world’s foremost maker of kinetic plasma sculpture, in a major solo exhibition opening July 15. The six month exhibit, with almost one hundred individual pieces grouped into ten installations, will be complemented by several events celebrating glass and technology-based art.
The Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation’s main galleries tell the stories of innovators such as Francis Cabot Lowell, creator of the American system of manufacturing, and Arthur Denison, creator of the Waltham Watch Company; however, in the past four years the museum has focused its temporary gallery space on exhibits highlighting the creative side of the innovation / invention process.
