Other Worlds—Fantastic Visions
Saturday, Aug. 8, 2015
03:00 PM – 03:45 PM
Guests can journey to extraordinary wonderlands this summer! The Museum is brimming with otherworldly destinations—real and imaginary, tangible and virtual. On this 45-minute tour, guests might turn into a virtual monster; enter a fanciful time warp where teapots meet ostentatious factories; or beam themselves "back to the future" to explore a utopian world. Visitors will be amazed by the way artists have transformed the real world into fantastic visions.
