Blue Man Group—Making Waves, the national touring exhibit will open at Orlando Science Center on Saturday, May 25.
The 1,500-square-foot exhibit—designed to bring together science and art—will take the whole family through a multi-sensory exploration of sound that provides an opportunity to play together while discovering the fun of music.
Onstage, the Blue Man is one-part inquisitive child, one-part trickster and one-part superhero on a journey of discovery. Throughout Blue Man Group—Making Waves, families are encouraged to learn, play and explore with the same curiosity as these renowned performing artists.
Co-founder of Blue Man Group Chris Wink says, “After years of being able to express ourselves creatively on stage, it has become increasingly important to us to develop experiences that encourage and expand the creative development of others—particularly children and their parents. We’re very excited to see this exhibit come to life with JBL technology, and who better to demonstrate the true value of understanding quality sound than Harman.”
At the Slide-u-lum, Build-u-lum, Sand Drum and Theramin, children will have an opportunity to see, feel and create sound. At the PVC Station, visitors of all ages will have a chance to play the unique Blue Man Group instruments while learning how sound works. The whole experience culminates in the JBL®-equipped Surround Sound Theater where engineering genius combines with a short musical piece by Blue Man Group to illustrate the elements of sound.
On Sunday, June 2 from Noon-2 p.m., the Blue Man Group will be visiting the Science Center to interact with guests in the exhibit, conducting paint and music workshops, and hosting a homemade instrument contest. They will play the Tube Phones, Slide-u-lum, Build-u-lum, Sand Drum, PVCs and Belly Drum and engage with guests the best way they know how through fun and discovery. They will also roam all four floors of the Science Center, where guests can get up close and personal with Blue Man Group.
The exhibit will be at Orlando Science Center through the summer.
Admission to the Orlando Science Center is $19 for adults and $13 for youth (ages 3–11) and includes access to “Blue Man Group—Making Waves” as well as all four floors of exhibits, giant-screen films in the Dr. Phillips CineDome, one Hollywood feature-length film in the Digital Adventure Theater: A National Geographic Experience and live programming.
