Go ahead, let your kid smash that vase. Or jump on the fluorescent sofa. Or smear goop on the walls with unbridled abandon. It’s the Grand Opening and debut of Wild Child – a new interactive gallery, art studio, and play space for babies and little kids popping up for an exclusive four-month run in the Bay Area.
Created by a team of educators, renowned artists, and early child development experts, Wild Child is a new pop-up experience created for infants and little kids to roam free and explore the limits of artistic expression. Together with their parents or caregivers, kids lead the way through an immersive, multi-sensory world where they call the shots, make the rules, and imagine new realities. Wild Child features the interactive works of internationally acclaimed artists, hosts weekly workshops and sensory-based art classes designed for tiny hands and growing minds.
Wild Child is created specifically for babies and children between the ages of 6 months up to 5 years old; older siblings/children are welcome. Adults cannot enter unaccompanied by children.
