SCHNEIDER CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL MAIN LOBBY
A dynamic sculpture provides numerous paths for colorful marbles to follow as they roll down hill through a series of ramps, loops, drops, turns and gates. The interactive sculpture is set in a clear lucite case 3 feet square and approximately 7 feet high. Interaction points are accessible through the case. Visitors can release marbles into the flow, ring bells and stay engaged until a grownup says they have to go. An elevator lifts the marbles to the top where they begin their round trip again.
Marble Roller was donated to Scheider Children's Hospital by Discover the Smile Foundation
