ARTISTS MARKET
Art Inc. Kentucky, in partnership with the Living Arts and Science Center, presents a Holiday Art Market. Shop small for your holiday gift giving needs and buy handmade to support local area artists and creative entrepreneurs.

IN THE MAKER’S SPACE… It’s Physics! – Building Retro Toys
Before electronics, toys used physics to entertain. Collaborate with friends and family to build your own toys that WOW. Using basic physics principles, create spinners or Jacob’s ladders, balloon racers or amazing floating balls. Take them home and impress friends and family with your retro physics inspired toys.

IN THE DISCOVERY GALLERY… How Things Work: Engineering + Innovation
From concept to construction, visitors actively participate in STEAM education while learning about energy, motion, force, and other engineering concepts. Design, build, and test your ideas, solving problems and finding creative solutions along the way.
• Explore force, energy and motion through experiments with a giant Newton’s Cradle, magnetic ball/tube walls, pulley systems, catapults, parachutes and more. Six simple machines will interactively demonstrate concepts including levers, wheel and axle, inclined plane, pulley and screw.
• Delve into the artistry and innovation of engineering concepts and designs throughout history – from the pyramids of Giza to the International Space Station! Soak up the engineering brilliance of Leonardo da Vinci, Alexander Graham Bell, Gustave Eiffel, and Emily Warren Roebling, among others!
