#MakerDaySJMA

The maker movement has unearthed corners of creative innovation everywhere, from major tech companies to local libraries to universities across the country. Guillermo Galindo, whose work is featured in Border Cantos: Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo, exemplifies the maker attitude when he builds musical instruments from found objects. He will perform compositions on these instruments at 2:30 PM. Watch other demonstrations from local makers (including TechShop San Jose), and an interactive performance by the musical group ZunZun (11:45 AM).
