If you look close enough at the Swing Set Drum Kit you will find all kinds of treasures hanging from the gears. From sleigh bells to playing cards, Dave Ford packs the sculpture with numerous noise making elements to capture the sounds created by the momentum of the swingers.
To keep the parents and children in line occupied, Ford and his happy pack of Swing Set Volunteers will hand out a checklist of hidden treasures to seek out while waiting in line. Who likes to wait? Waiting AND looking for hidden treasures is SO much more fun.
The Swing Set Drum Kit will certainly be the noisiest creation at Calder Plaza during ArtPrize, beckoning swingers from afar to come ride the swing set that plays the drum kit. See you there!
