Set your intentions for the New Year with an interactive new art installation in our lobby! This special K2 Friday Night marks the opening of The Wheel of Intentions, an installation inspired by Tibetan prayer wheels and part of our upcoming exhibition The Power of Intention. Celebrate with free admission and activities throughout the Museum.

With each turn of the wheel, activate your intentions and reinforce the intentions of others as they are released into the world. See how they take visual form and travel up the spiral staircase.
