The Oakland Museum of California approached MADE to put on an exhibit as part of the Museum's customization gallery. Rather than exhibiting "static games showing off how developers can customize ideas," MADE wanted to get "creative interaction" out of the attendees.
MADE hired Minecraft artist, HuskerGirlKC, to help recreate the city alongside other other builders in the child-safe Paradise Minecraft Server.
The organization considered using Team Fortress 2 for the exhibit as an example of how "gamers can customize their games, and make something entirely new in the process," but they deemed it too violent to put on display for kids and families.
The exhibit will run from 5 - 8 pm PDT, April 26 in the Customization room at the OMCA. Two more showings will be held on April 27 and 28, from 1 to 3 pm PDT. Screenshots of the in-game construction are on the MADE website.
