Maker in Residence

Meet the Maker: Maxi Dominguez

Have you ever met someone so overflowing with creativity that you wonder what they’re going to think up next? Maxi Dominguez, artist, entrepreneur, community activist and Amazeum Maker in Residence is one of those people. Maxi joined the Amazeum team for a residency to facilitate screen printing sessions for adults and teens and brought with him a diverse perspective on the importance of creative thought and action to impact individuals and communities.


Playfully Impulsive Activity

Large-scale, interactive art installations at the Scott Family Amazeum UnGala FUNdraiser bring a unique opportunity for the Northwest Arkansas community to experience the creativity of makers and artists from throughout North America. The 2021 UnGala was no exception. Unlike previous year’s experiences Life Size Mousetrap, and Hand of Man, created by individuals, Impulse represents a collaboration between the arts and sciences, architects and engineers that created an opportunity for collective, interactive play at the perfect time.
