The VSA, the State Organization on Arts and Disabilities, will be showcasing their student’s work all day, in addition to the interactive sculpture on display in the Polasek Gallery.

Try using a cane and feel the world of texture around you in this blindfolded, eye-opening experience you’ll want to try! Talk and describe what you’re “seeing” with your hands. Members of the local drumming group “Rhythm Metamorphosis” will give an informal drumming performance at 3:00 in the garden. Throughout the day, visitors are encouraged to FEEL the beat and participate with the group! Drum circles are a fantastic way to express your own unique rhythms and have fun playing a tactical instrument.
