April 3, 2017 – The Grohmann Museum at MSOE is hosting an all-ages LEGO/K’nex building workshop on Saturday, April 8 from 12 to 4 p.m. The theme is “Metropolis: Building the City,” and attendees will imagine and construct the cities and transportation systems of tomorrow. Everyone will contribute their own ideas and creations to one very large LEGO/K’nex city that will be created on-site that day.
The workshop, led by John and Sylvia Peine, is included with regular museum admission, which is $5 for adults; $3 for students and seniors; free for children under 12. MSOE students (with ID), alumni, faculty and staff are admitted free.
The museum is located at 1000 N. Broadway, and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.
The Grohmann Museum is home to the Man at Work collection, which comprises more than 1,300 paintings and sculptures dating from 1580 to the present. They reflect a variety of artistic styles and subjects that document the evolution of organized work: from farming and mining to trades such as glassblowing and seaweed gathering. The Grohmann Museum welcomes visitors to three floors of galleries where a core collection is displayed as well as themed exhibitions. The museum is owned by MSOE, an independent university with about 2,900 students. MSOE offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the engineering, business, mathematics and nursing fields.
