22 Engaging Outdoor Exhibits

From Immersive Rainbow Pavilions to LEGO Subway Stations

— July 31, 2014 — Art & Design
Adding a more interactive quality to art and culture, these outdoor exhibits use open, public spaces to create a more immersive experience for viewers.

Moving away from the often confining spaces of galleries and art shows, these outdoor exhibits are blending pieces of art with outdoor artifacts to create a sense of intrigue. Using public spaces and overarching sculptures to encourage individuals to think in more abstract terms, these outdoor exhibits are transforming cultural experiences into more interactive and visually alluring spectacles. From playground-like art installations to LEGO-inspired subway art shows, these creative installations seek to challenge ordinary concepts of artistic expression. A great way to introduce new ideas to a wider and more diverse audience, these outdoor exhibits are reinventing what it means to integrate art on a larger scale.
