Seven zany acrobats and one electrifying musician take in a monochrome exhibit. With a creative spark, they set off an explosion of color – and a lot of popcorn. In mocking defiance of convention, these wacky and endearing characters eagerly explore the exhibition inside out. Dizzying feats, astonishing discoveries, poetic liberties, and a serious dose of silly good fun come together to fuel this ode to creativity. ART WINS!
