Step inside the ‘Goodnight Moon’ bedroom in a new immersive exhibition

Local design studio and artist collective Fort Makers has put together a new, immersive exhibition called "Goodnight House." Inspired by the classic children's book "Goodnight Moon"--written by Brooklyn-born author Margaret Wise Brown--the show not only brings you into the book's pages, but it features new artwork and designed objects that are reimaginations of various objects found within the book’s bedroom setting.
