Crank Zappa Jellyfish

Grand Rapids Public Museum
272 Pearl Street NW,
Grand Rapids, MI 49503

Touch the sensors on the tentacles of this mammoth sculpture to light it up and get (hopefully useful) advice and guidance from a hot-tempered jellyfish. Crank Zappa Jellyfish is an interactive sculpture created from plastic waste. Lights animate and respond to touch sensors at the ends of the tentacles. Crank Zappa is completely constructed from single-use plastic items including 1,000 plastic bags, straws, and 800 plastic bottles that were salvaged from Scotts Creek and 1,200 meters of recycled twine that was weaved together by 40 volunteers. The World of Winter Festival takes advantage of Michigan’s cold climate to provide interesting ways for people to experience and enjoy the season. This Festival aspires is to make Grand Rapids a more active winter city - which makes Grand Rapids a more active year-round city. All programming and activities are FREE, socially distanced for these pandemic times, and geared for both families and adults. World of Winter is organized by Downtown Grand Rapids Inc., the City of Grand Rapids, and numerous community partners.
