Children and families can go beyond the gallery with Shared Space: Photography From 1987 and Beyond. Pick up an education guide at the front desk for a glimpse of artists' birthplaces through a world map, a variety of behind-the-camera activities, an exercise in Chinese calligraphy and a create your own city.

The Circle Gallery will be home to all things hands-on for this exhibit. It features:

  • Things that go: A closer look at some of the transportation motifs in the exhibition. A table of craft items will be stocked daily so children can create something that goes.
  • Architecture: A detailed look at architecture from the exhibition. Children can draw and use building blocks to create their own structure.
  • Photo booth: Props can be used for dress up and parents are encouraged to post photos with the exhibition hashtag (#OCACsharedspace).
  • Thoughts from the exhibition: Cut out paper in the shape of clothing, write your exhibition thoughts on it and hang it on clothesline (mimicking Gabriel Orozco's photo above).
