Motivated by the exciting construction of the Hajjar STEM Center, the D-E Visual Arts Department coordinated a STEM Art Making Challenge this spring, led by faculty member Rachel Brusky. All Middle and Upper School students and faculty were invited to create art inspired by science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Submissions were welcomed in all media, including drawings, photography, digital artwork, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, and videos. The results were incredible! Below is just a sampling of the array of works that were then displayed at the Imperatore Library and are now viewable online at the STEM Art Site: Gallery.
Brusky commented, “While viewing the work, you are invited to reflect on the connections that the artists are making and that you perceive between these subjects. Additionally, this show represents the transition from STEM to STEAM, which incorporates art and design into the study and practice of the STEM subjects.”
