Make your mark, and shape a work of art on display at the Wexner Center.

See more pictures and follow the installation's changes on the Wexblog.
This interactive installation, created by Los Angeles-based sculptor Charles Long, begins life as a minimalist sculpture with 100 brightly hued, one-pound blocks of colored clay arranged on rows of shelves. Visitors are then invited to sculpt the clay, inventing new shapes or altering other patrons' sculptures already on view. Stop by to see how it's changing, or if you like, to add a new form of your own (at least until the next one comes along).
