Toys for Elephants

Toys for Elephants

Professor: Rick Brown

In collaboration with Professors Rick and Laura Brown’s Handhouse Studio and the Buttonwood Park Zoo in New Bedford, MA, MassArt presents this intense interdisciplinary course involving multicultural themes, community service, and design/building studies.

Students have the opportunity to contribute to elephant’s daily needs and to participate in a global discussion about the complexity of a threatened species, in an intensely political climate that surrounds the issue.
