Robolights Detroit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit

Treat your kids to a colorful sci-fi experience at the Robolights Detroit exhibit, on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit through May 3, 2020.

Is your child into artwork or science fiction? Give her a dose of both at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit’s new temporary site-specific installation, Robolights Detroit.

This exhibit is open Oct. 25, 2019-May 3, 2020 on the lawn of Mike Kelly’s Mobile Homesteada full-scale replica of the late artist’s Westland childhood home – and features sculptures and lighting structures by Kenny Irwin, the artist behind the popular RoboLights exhibit in Palm Springs, California.

Guests who visit this exhibit will delight in spectacular science fiction-inspired lighted towers, pirate ships complete with skeletons and unknown creatures straight from Irwin’s wild imagination.

And when you’ve completed your tour of the lights, you can take a look at the companion exhibit inside of the Mobile Homestead, which features pen and ink drawings along with photographs of the original RoboLights.

Robolights Detroit is open during regular Mobile Homestead hours, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday-Sunday. Admission to the exhibit is free, though a $5 suggested donation is welcome to help support the MOCAD.

For more information on this exhibit – or other family fun things to do this weekend in metro Detroit and Ann Arbor – see the Metro Parent calendar.
