Scavenger Hunt for Found Sounds | Virtual Drop-In Experience

Due to CAMH’s suspension of in-person public gatherings, a modified presentation of this art-making activity premiered online.

Inspired by DJ Screw and his influence on Houston’s music and culture, explore current exhibitions from home to complete a scavenger hunt for common sounds.
