Children are encouraged to crawl and directly engage with a vibrant installation by artist Shinique Smith. Secret Garden Laughing Place, is an expansive labyrinth and abstract painting, that contemplates matters of transnational consumption, as well as the human need for play and wonder. This exhibition expands the Museum’s year-long survey of the question “What does it mean to be a global citizen?” We encourage our small visitors to think about our inter-connectivity as humans, our role in waste production, and our relationship to this planet.
