The Groovik's Cube is now being funded as part of the $5 million Beyond Rubik's Cube exhibition!

Groovik's Cube, the world's largest working Rubik's Cube, will be re-created as the centerpiece of Beyond Rubik's Cube. This new exhibit launches in 2014 to pay tribute to the invention of the Rubik's Cube on its 40th anniversary. Thanks to our generous exhibition funders, we'll transform the Burning Man art festival original Groovik's Cube into a robust, globe-trotting version. To all those who generously supported our campaign, be on the lookout for your perks!
