Modular Art Pods (MAPs) is an open-source collaborative art tunnel that you crawl through. MAPs @ Queen Ave is produced and curated by Tyler Blankenship and Tyler Walker. The original MAPs was conceived and produced by Tony Youngblood. Each artist designs a pod and builds it. Attendees can experience the tunnel by going through the pods or walking the perimeter. Anyone can enjoy Modular Art Pods no matter their age or accessibility needs. Some large pods are wheelchair accessible. Smaller “crawl” pods can also be experienced through an accessible “backlot tour,” featuring peepholes, behind-the-scenes views, and inside/outside interactivity.
If you are seeking to perform with another pod instead of building, please select "Perform in a Performance Pod" below
