Maker in Residence

Meet the Maker: Acadia Kandora

 Makers, artists, and creatives are fascinating to talk with. While everyone has a story, and is often willing to tell it, makers not only tell, they show. Each maker’s story begins not with a blank slate, but on one etched with life experiences. Their story unfolds with visual aids of their own making adding depth and richness to the narrative. A recent Maker in Residence at the Scott Family Amazeum, Acadia Kandora, is a case in point. As a print maker, she creates in a medium that couples images born from imagination and experiences with words to tell her story. 


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.   

Maker in Residence

Meet the Maker: Chase Young

Makers in Residence at the Scott Family Amazeum bring diverse skill sets and backgrounds with them when they arrive. Chase Young, who lead sessions in the Workshop on molding and casting, is no exception.
