See, pinball is primal: man versus machine. And as a showcase piece of furniture, those long boxy devils are aesthetically pleasing and loaded with neat little tweaks in design. If your love affair with pinball has grown a bit hazy, rekindle the flame with a visit to the Cornell Museum of Art and American Cultures new exhibit, Pinball Palooza: The Art, The History, The Game. It features info on the evolution of your favorite paddle-whacking pastime as well as an assemblage of vintage games to check out, and yes, even some to play. The Cornell is located within Old School Square Cultural Arts Center, at 51 N. Swinton Ave., in Delray Beach. Visit today between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., and if youre older than 12, expect to drop 6 bucks. Visit oldschool.org/exhibits.
