Metalsmith and jewelry designer, Sunyoung Cheong will be facilitating two sessions of her interactive installation Wearable Play at the KC Downtown Library (14 W. 10th St.) on Friday, August 3.

Wearable Play is an exploration of an environment where children and adults are encouraged to play and utilize their imagination through the assemblage of common objects such as wood, plastic, foam, and fabric to create puzzle pieces and their own unique wearables that then become part of the exhibit. By assembling their own wearable objects, the audience participates in a performance, and their creations become a powerful component of the exhibition.

You have two opportunities to participate in the fun on August 3rd, from 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm or at the Art Starts event from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm where Sunyoung will be joined by other Art in the Loop artists David Alpert, Stacey Sharpe, and local musicians Twin Stranger.
