Overview

Opening Reception Friday, September 13, 2019  5 pm - 9 pm

 Automaton (noun) - a self-operating machine, or a machine or control mechanism designed to automatically follow a predetermined sequence of operations, or respond to predetermined instructions.

This exhibition features seven prominent automaton makers from across the United States. Working with a variety of styles and mechanisms, including crank-shaft and electrically driven automata, the exhibition is sure to bring out the viewers inner child and playful side. Each piece encourages interaction, is uniquely constructed and vastly different from all of the others.
