The InTouch Project is a hands-on sculptural experience that marks an entirely new direction for Bay Area artist Stephanie Metz. Beyond creating works meant to be touched, Metz has increased the scale of her work to human-scaled objects.
The de Saisset Museum is the first venue to present these new, alluring hands-on sculptural objects. Join us, and get ready to touch the art!
