The Bridge Projects: Patrick Martinez at CMA

Kicking off a CMA's new Bridge Project, a series of installations in the Bridge (formerly known as the Groove Tube) is "The Bridge Project: Patrick Martinez," a sculptural work by artist Patrick Martinez that opens on Thursday, April 28. The ethereal installation, which kids can walk through and even (gently) touch, is made of a construction kit Martinez designed, called JIX (its pieces resemble drinking straws). Kids can build their own JIX projects in the Fine Art Studio, though they can't take them home. But the kit is sold at the museum, so fear not if your crew gets hooked.


"The Bridge Project: Patrick Martinez" will be on view at the Children's Museum of the Arts through late June (the exact date had not yet been set at press time).
