The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) in Corona is kicking off the holiday season with dozens of displays and events, offering a different way to celebrate the season.
“It’s a really fun way of imaging the holidays during this particularly festive and busy time,” said Liz Slagus of NYSCI.
From December 27 through December 29, “ReMake the Holidays” will include workshops, demos and art installations that will cover everything from light, to sound, to water. All displays are open to the public and free with admission, although some require pre-registration.
Through one of the more notable displays, NYSCI attendees can witness artist Bill Bywater create a sculpture out of ice, partake in a discussion, and even get a tutorial from Bywater himself.
Other workshops allow the public to make their very own giant “lite brite” to ring in the New Year, or turn recycled material into a musical instrument.
“They’re fun family events, it’s something for everyone,” said Slagus. “They ask people to reimagine how we celebrate.”
