The Montshire collaborated with educator Becky Lindsay and artist Leonard Solomon to create two extraordinary experiences in this exhibition. Lindsay, the Creative Director of the educational organization MindSplash, specially customized their signature A-Mazing Airways exhibit for the Montshire. This whimsical piece is a pneumatic air system that combines air tubes, high-performance air systems, interactive diverter boxes, and soaring air pathways of all shapes and sizes for a mesmerizing learning experience. Musician and inventor Solomon created an air-operated Bottle Organ to provide a memorable and enchanting lesson on the use of air in making music.
