Presented on the High’s outdoor Sifly Piazza, this installation by internationally renowned designer Yuri Suzuki features ingenious, colorful sculptures that modify and transmit sound in unusual, engaging and playful ways.

Sonic Playground continues the High’s multiyear initiative to animate its outdoor space with commissions that engage visitors in participatory art experiences. It is the High’s first venture into exploring the notion of audible play—how the sounds all around us can be constructed, altered and experienced.

The installation transforms the piazza into a welcoming atmosphere for socializing and recreation and serves as a stage for performances and art-making activities the High is co-organizing with local arts organizations.

Sonic Playground: Yuri Suzuki is organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta.
Support for the High Museum’s presentation is provided by the Lettie Pate Evans Foundation.
