Event Description

The names of many art environments and their creators are lovingly woven through the mosaics of Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. One of these is Tom Every, creator of the Forevertron in Wisconsin.  During his career as an industrial scrapper Every saw elegance, whimsy, and even personality in the objects he dismantled and later turned into large-scale sculptures. This month’s take-home craft kit is inspired by Every’s work. Kits include a tin candy box and other pieces to create your own small robot.
