The KAC Links Invitational

Practice your backswing and prepare to tee off. For the KAC Links Invitational, a dozen artists have transformed the gallery into a playable, nine-hole miniature golf course. Each given a four-by-eight square of Astroturf, they variously added conveyor belts, juice cups, plywood, and more to create these innovative designs. 7 Ways to Enjoy Washing the Dishes, by Ben Hirschkoff and Jason Wood, requires you to stand atop a kitchen sink and aim for the drain. More challenging still is Tiger’s Lament, by Trevor Johnson and Ryan Molenkamp, set up to resemble the scene of Tiger Woods’ notorious car crash. (It even includes a moveable, wood cut-out of a woman wielding a golf club, à la Elin Nordegren, which you can operate via string to distract your opponent.) This accessible installation is sure keep art connoisseurs and kids alike amused. Those with a competitive spirit, make note: The average visitor score so far is 25. (Continues through July 29; and circle your calendar for the July 24 closing party featuring music by Whiting Tennis, cocktails, and a golf-themed costume contest.)
