Science of Art: Althea ChromeEnjoy half-price admission as you explore the connections between art and science! The evening program will feature Bloomington artist Althea Crome, who will demonstrate how she knits amazingly intricate work on a miniature scale. Ms. Crome is nationally known for her small-scale creations for Coraline, the 2009 animated 3D film. Related visitor activities will be on a larger scale and will not involve needles. Visitors will be challenged to knit pieces using their arms, or just their fingers, taking the place of knitting needles. A small-plate meal, prepared by Bloomingfoods, will be available to purchase onsite in the WonderLab cafe.
