I am in for anything with “rest” in the name, and resting is what this space at KAM is all about. “Rest” implies a couple of different meanings: It’s a gallery space that is “resting” between exhibitions, and it’s a space where people can come and find a bit of rest.
From January 24th to February 11th, stop by the Contemporary Gallery on the main level to check it out. According to KAM, you are encouraged to “take a pause and sit, reflect, lie down, draw, listen, read, write, play, and experience the museum in your own restful way.”
There are a few planned events happening in this space over the next few weeks.
- Rest Lab Sound and Light Installation, February 2nd, 6 p.m. Experience a light, sound, and dance performance with Urbana Dance Company, Matt Harsh, and Twoleggedzoo
- Restful Storytime, February 4th, 2 to 4 p.m. Bring your kiddos to hear stories focused on restfulness, relaxation, and meditation
- Speak Café: Rest and Rejuvenation, February 9th, 6 to 8 p.m. Find some relaxation through sharing and listening at the open-mic gathering
