PECO Family Jams: Found-Object Robots

February 12 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

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 project is inspired by Every’s work. Come create your own small robot out of a candy tin using screws, noodles, bolts, bits, and bobs.

PECO Family Jams are PMG’s one-of-a-kind, family-oriented programs, featured every second Sunday of the month between NOON and 4:00 PM. No reservations are required for PECO Family Jams, but admission tickets should be purchased in advance here.
