Chop Stick by Visiondivison

Visiondivision was commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art to create an innovative concession stand for the 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park.

The Discovery Zone was the more exciting Chuck-E-Cheese. Instead of being centered on video games, it promoted exploration and physical […]
