Thank you Baylor/Waco Foundation!
Musical Soundscape is a fantastic installation with visible triggers that cause sounds to be produced by the
motion of passers-by. Visitors quickly learn that by moving in certain ways, they create a wide range of sounds
and music. The more motion, the more music. The more participants, the more fun. This new permanent exhibit
component has brought the Butterfly Hallway at the Mayborn to life.
The wonderful and exciting installation has been made possible by a generous grant from the Baylor/ Waco
Foundation. Recently several Baylor/Waco Foundation board members enjoyed a demonstration of the new exhibit.
