ToeHeads Now Permanent at Center Of Science And Industry Museum

COSI + ToeHeads = Perfect Match

I remember taking field trips as a child to The Center of Science And Industry (COSI). The long bus ride seemed to take days, but we were always rewarded with a kid’s museum built for fun, tinkering, and science. Even as an adult I am in total wonder of this place. Its magical atmosphere seems almost otherworldly with creative possibilities.

I imagined a day when I was an adult and I could make such splendid futuristic things…

In between undergrad  and grad school I worked for a company that painted industrial scaled murals, built sculptural storefronts, and made interactive displays for museums. It was a job that would bolster my already expanding interest in large-scale projects. We created work for COSI and other like museums. As much as I loved this type of work it wasn’t my work. It wasn’t my concepts.

I imagined a day when I was established enough that they would want  MY splendid futuristic things…

A little known fact: I’ve always liked art, but I had also planned on being a physicist. In fact, my love of science has never left me. Even in grad school I centered my masters thesis artwork around the neurological and physiological change that happens to the body when a person encounters a positive scenario. So when COSI contacted me about creating my ToeHeads for their eating space, illustrations of my own imagination, I was aware of just how full circle things have come. It’s a proud moment when one realizes that they are living their childhood dream in their childhood dreamscape.  Check out their 50 yr anniversary exhibitions!
