November 1, 2017 – March 31, 2018: Creating Spaces Making Places

Imagination Playground is back at the High Plains Museum!  The exhibit “Creating Spaces Making Places” which features Imagination Playground, will be on display at the Museum until March 31.

“Creating Spaces Making Places” explores Goodland’s architectural history.  Learn about sod houses, grain elevators, and buildings in Goodland on the National Register of Historic Places.  Accompanying the exhibit is Imagination Playground, a hands-on creative approach to let everyone’s imagination free.  With 105 blocks and many different shapes and sizes, children and adults can build whatever their imaginations wish.  From boats, castles and robots, to new and exciting made up games, these blocks are open-ended free play.

Imagination Playground was inspired by the “junk playgrounds” that were created from destroyed buildings in Europe after WWII.  Children would play in the “junk playgrounds” and use a variety of tools to supplement their play.  It was this play that led to Imagination Playground – and the many different shapes and sizes that allow one to build anything.

This exhibit was made possible by EBH & Associates, P.A., Megan & Tristan Thomas, Douglas J. Sederstrom, CPA, P.A., Right Combination Dance Studio, Westport Grill & Ice Cream Shop – Olde Westport Spice & Trading Co., Shelter Insurance – Jim Alcorn Agent, Rasure Lumber Inc., Clark Crossing Co., & Kiwanis.
