Games Day at the Wig

Playing games can distract us from our hectic lives and can also simulate reality, including war.

In The Things They Carried, the simple game of checkers becomes a "ritual" that is "orderly and reassuring" with a "winner and a loser" (31).

Come to the Wignall Museum to play chess, board games, and role playing games with your classmates, friends, faculty, and staff. Learn about the history of chess, one of the first war games, and consider the role of games in society.

This event is scheduled in conjunction with Occupy the Museum, an exhibition and experimental project, currently on view through November 22, 2013.

Featuring art work by the LA Art Girls, Elana Mann, Joe Suzuki, and Ehren Tool.
