The IDEAworks exhibition took place at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. In this exhibition, the creativity of visitors is tested by making use of Crayola products to sketch, draw, and doodle the answers to questions. Questions such as how to build a sustainable town and how to regenerate a coral reef are always asked.
I really believe that creativity is in all of us, and with this exhibition, the drawing, the purpose is to inspire people to find their own creative pulse. I’m… super grateful to be able to showcase my own art as well.Whipper-Young
