Onstage, the Blue Man is one part inquisitive child, one part trickster, and one part superhero on a journey of discovery. Throughout Blue Man Group - Making Waves families are encouraged to learn, play and explore with the same curiosity as these renowned performing artists.
“This interactive exhibit based on the well known and contemporary performing group will have children and parents alike enthralled in the color and sound created within the space,” said Jane Turner, executive director of Children’s Museum of Atlanta. “Blue Man Group – Making Waves does such a great job of teaching kids how the elements of science and art come together to create music in a way that disguises the fact that they’re learning.”
Co-founder of Blue Man Group, Chris Wink says, "After 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 others-particularly children and their parents. We'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."
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 and the whole experience culminates in the JBL®-equipped Surround Sound Theater where engineering genius combines with a short musical piece by Blue Man Group to illustrate the elements of sound.
The exhibit will be at Children’s Museum of Atlanta through September 4.
