Building the Reef

Construction of the Roanoke Valley Reef took place in January, 2013. Over two thousand pieces crafted by over 200 contributors (ages 5 to 90, from the Bahamas to Hawaii) were assembled in Olin Gallery, on multiple forms cleverly designed by Talia Logan and her student assistants. A multisensory display with interactive light shows and music adds to a truly unique experience. The grand opening was January 25, 2013, and the exhibit remains open through March 4. Come and see it in person!
