Sadly, this date has passed so tickets are no longer available.


Admission is FREE for Penn Museum Members and Children under 6.

Participation in the 2:30pm workshop is first come, first serve.

The Happening occurs at 4pm with the option to adopt a foal!

Visitors will work with artist Douglas Repetto to assemble a herd of vicious foals—small walking tables made from scrap wood and a simple mechanism. The monstrous herd will then be set free in the majestic China Rotunda where an epic struggle between good and evil may or may not take place.


Douglas Irving Repetto is an artist and teacher. His work, including sculpture, installation, performance, recordings, and software is presented internationally. He is the founder of a number of art/community-oriented groups including dorkbot: people doing strange things with electricity, ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show, organism: making art with living systems, and the music-dsp mailing list and website. Douglas is Director of Research at the Columbia University Computer Music Center and lives in New York City with his wife, writer Amy Benson, and their young son Beals; two cute/bad cats, Pokey and Sneezy; and many plants.
