Lunch At Amuse Restaurant
Among the most beloved features of the MIT Museum are Arthur Ganson’s kinetic sculptures. Press a pedal or turn a crank and you’ll put Ganson’s machines into motion. His sculptures, created from found or fabricated objects, explore the nature of oiled surfaces, object manipulation, and slow explosions. Also on display during our visit is Big Bang Data, conceived by the Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona, which explores the intersections of culture, technology and society in the digital age; and the photographs of György Kepes, a Hungarian-born painter, photographer, designer, educator, and art theorist. We’ll tour the Museum on our own before walking a couple of blocks to Amuse Restaurant in Le Meridien for lunch. Meet at the turnstiles at the Charles/MGH Station at 10 a.m. or at the MIT Museum, 265 Massachusetts Avenue, at 10:30 a.m. If you are meeting at the Museum, take the Red Line to Central Square and walk 4/10 mile down Massachusetts Avenue towards the river. BHV members, their guests and prospective members: $5. Lunch is pay individually.
