In 2016, I had the opportunity to work alongside other volunteers to create and construct the “Play Big” zone. As one of the 9 zones built by local artists, designers, and architects, Play Big’s theme focused on bright colors and interactive artwork with large scale (playable) games from childhood.
Based on pitched sketches, 12′ illustrated panels accompanied our zone activities. Sections included giant Twister and Checkers, as well as a Tetris Lounge.
