Have you seen it?
A mysterious creature is coming to Central Library, 1301 Olive Street.
The NEST is an art installation and open-ended play experience that explores a giant mythical creature. Through storytelling and art-making, participants build the creature’s shelter.
The NEST is FREE, and open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- What is the NEST? The NEST is an interactive makerspace for young and the young-at-heart to explore and create together.
- What can you expect from the NEST? Artist facilitators guide participants through a three dimensional NEST structure and lead mixed media activities and art projects, including painting, movement, map-making and theatre games. There is something for everyone.
- What is the benefit of the NEST? The NEST uses STEAM skills (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) to explore the idea that a mythical creature is coming to St. Louis and we need to build this habitat for it. The exhibit is community-led and built by participants. You and your family can help build this environment and then see your work on display in the exhibit.
- Who is the NEST for? Anyone who is curious and likes to invent and explore, but if you are a tired caregiver, you can also relax and watch your little ones have a great time with our amazing artist facilitators.
