The Running Date at MIA!

15 Oct

Today we were very excited to have the participants of the Running Date (http://runningdate.ca) visit the museum as one of their stops in this competition inspired by the Amazing Race designed specifically for couples.

In order to complete the challenge at the museum, one member of the couple team had to find a sculpture in the museum and sculpt this same piece using some play-doh.

Next, the other team member  had to sketch the play-doh sculpture, and then try to match their sketch to the original sculpture in the museum. Once a successful match was made, the team  had completed the challenge and could move on to their next stop in the competition.

We had a great time hosting this challenge for the event, and I must say, we were quite impressed by the artistic talents of the Running Date competitors!
